Lenin Peak (7134 m.) is located on the border between Kyrgyzstan and Tajorjitan, in the Pamir mountain range. This peak is one of three seven thousands in Kyrgyzstan, in addition to the 7439 m Pobeda Peak and the 7010 m Khan Tengri Peak. Lenin Peak is considered the most accessible seven thousand, both for the economic aspect (you can reach the base camp by land transport, so there is no need to use helicopter) and in the technical aspect (the classic ascent route does not have the complicated stretches of ice or rock). However, to climb to its top you need good physical preparation, resistance, adequate material and good acclimatization.
Base Camp is located in an elevated meadow between two steep valleys. The floor is a carpet of wild garlic and alpine flowers. From the BC, we will pass through the Puteshestvinnikov Pass (4200 m.). The ascent usually lasts 1 hour or an hour and a half on a simple path, although sometimes there is snow in the pass. After a descent to the left of the glacier, we cross the river carefully, early in the morning to avoid the mid-morning flood. That way we’ll get to Camp 1, at 4400 m.
Then we will cross the dry glacier of Lenin and ascend the long slopes that go straight to the top by the north face. At 5000 meters, we cross to the west, and ascending gently, we reach the edge of a large snow basin and after a short ascent by a path, we reach Camp 2.
The next day is quite long and exhausting, so we’ll get up early to avoid the effects of the sun. A simple corridor leads to the northern ridge of Razdelny Peak (6148 m.). At first, this ridge is quite flat, but as we get closer to the peak, the slope increases. The last ascent, 400 meters, to Razdelny Peak is simple, but the effects of altitude make it hard work, but the superb views of the summit make it worthwhile. To the north we have a perfect perspective on the Alai plain, while to the south we see a multitude of snow-capped peaks. The Communism and Korzhenevsky peaks dominate our view south of Pamir. Further east, Wakhan and Hindu Kush are clearly visible, and on a good day it is possible to distinguish Tirich Mir. From Razdelny Peak, the ridge crawls west and descends 100 meters to Razdelny Pass at 6000 meters. There is Camp 3.
From Camp 3 you can see the entire ridge of the summit. From here we’ll have two options. Either we climb directly to the top and return to Camp 3 in a long day, or we place a fourth field about 6400 meters. From Camp 3 we follow the wide ridge to a plateau (the location of Camp 4) at 6400 meters. We will cross back to the ridge itself where the terrain tilts to form a small passage that rotates on the north side. Above this, the crest is broken and rocky until we reach a large snowy plateau. We crosse it and join the ridge just below the top.
The summit, at 7134 meters, is crowned by several plates, including one of Lenin himself. The views, unsurprisingly, are exceptional and extend through Pamirs to Mustagh Ata and Kongur in China. Further away, in the distance, is the Hindu Kush and further west the Karakoram.
