Hello dears! This is a guide Boris Egorov from Kenya. We made it - the peak of Batian 5199м, yay! But it was not easy at all! Because of the rainy season, we were watered every day in the camp at 4200, and it was snowing on the mountain. And we made a difficult decision to start two hours after sunrise, so that the route had time to dry out a little. We left the camp at 7 am, started climbing at 8 am, and at 6:30 PM, at sunset stood on top! All the way there was fog, we were caught by rain and hail, a full set of summer African weather, but nothing stopped us! We went down in the darkness and pulled the last rope just after sunrise the next day. In total, we went from camp to camp for 25.5 hours. Day without sleep, only high-quality climbing and intense descent. Batian is a serious mountain, but we were ready and coped!
