Trip overview

 Osh - Base Camp (3600m) - Summit (7134m) - Base Camp - Osh

 

 

Lenin Peak is the best start for the "Snow Leopard" climbing program (all five seven-thousanders of the former USSR) and also the best initiation into high altitude climbing and into eight-thousanders’ world accordingly. The "Snow Leopard" title used to be one of the highest sports titles in the former Soviet Union.

Lenin Peak, set in extremely beautiful, powerful scenery, is probably the easiest 7000m peak in the world. As to the technical difficulties of the classic route (from north), it is a straightforward climb, similar in grade to those on Mont Blanc and Elbrus. Yet, the mountain is really high (2300m higher than Mont Blanc and 1500m than Elbrus), so it is by no means a "snow plod". Normally there is a trail in snow between the camps and from the assault camp to the summit, yet, the long final ridge has a couple of exposed pitches. These are climbed roped up, moving together. The glacier between BC and Camp 2 is crevassed and there is some risk (not high) of avalanches.

 

 

Good advice

When going to 7000m do not rely on your youth (in case you are young), or on your well-preserved health (if you are not in your first youth)! For several months do more or less systematic training, simple jogging is perfect for that. Despite the fact that the route is not technical, two factors, the unpredictable Pamirs’ weather and the altitude, can make the climb quite a challenge even for seasoned climbers. You should not regard it as just a “snow plod”. The success depends on your fitness, well planned acclimatization period, right set of gear, good guides and, last but not least, a bit of luck.

Tips guidelines (important information!)
You entrust your life, health, your time and money to the guides. And the guides take this responsibility for you and for the success of the whole trip. They are doing this 24 hours. 10-20 USD per day is expected as the normal amount of tips for the Guides and the staff of the program.
