Hello everyone, this is Dmitry Ermakov from the Lenin Peak. I guess this is my last message from this expedition. Today we made an attempt to climb the mountain, and ascend to the height of 6700м, but, unfortunately, there were squally wind and we were not able to continue climbing and return to Camp 3. All are very tired, exhausted and don't want to make a second attempt, so it was decided to go down and return to Moscow.

Unfortunately, the mountain didn’t let us a chance to climb till the summit. But it is better to return 10 times than do not return once. All alive and safe, all is well. Good-bye, see you in Moscow.
