Pik Lenin Routes

Just wondering if anyone has any credible information about routes up Pik Lenin?
Are there any decent alternatives to the Razdelnaya Route, that have decent route information and info?
Not looking for anything too tech, just another "safe" climbing route that might have less avalanche risks etc.
Any one who has climbed it got any info?
Thanks in advance!

I can't find anything online.

Peaks in Japan in early/mid April?

I'll be in Japan around early-mid April. I have a few questions on typical conditions around that time:

Where would snow line typically begin? Are axe/crampons sufficient, or are snowshoes likely to still be needed?
If that peak isn't reasonable as a (long) dayhike, are there other peaks in that area that are ...
