Expedition to Lenin Peak

The Lenin Peak (7,134 m) today is one of the most popular, easy of access and because of that most frequented peaks among 7,000m-odd summits of Pamir. It’s a common belief that the Lenin Peak is one of the easiest of the CIS’s four 7,000m-odd peaks to climb. To the certain extent that’s true but not in all.

The route in itself is not a technically difficult one and normally is carried out by mountaineers climbing in a roped-up-pair manner.
