I love the mountains of Central-Asia. I would very much like to get off the beaten tracks, but still include one 7000 m mountain. No definite plans, I'm pretty much up for anything.
Here are some ideas that I have in my mind:

1) Marble Wall traverse and Khan Tengri from the north
2) Communism and/or Korzhenevskoi (and a few lower peaks in the area)
3) Some rarely visited 5000-6000 m peaks in the neighborhood of Peak Lenin (eventually with (the
traverse of) Peak Lenin)

There is also a possibility to extend the "program" with climbing a few mountains in the lower ranges in the beginning.

This would be a non-commercial expedition using the logistics services of a local agency. I'm looking for fairly experienced and motivated partner(s) to join the expedition. This expedition will be self-sufficient and will certainly include a fare amount of suffering, so you need to know how to survive up there. True team-spirit is also very important, and so is the ability to control one's emotions/head.
Anybody interested? PM me, please.

josephdravisI'm interested


I lived in Almaty for two years, two years ago. I climbed Talgar Peak and some lesser peaks close to town. I'm doing a lot of trip this winter and may be ready for an expedition this summer. I know (at least used to know) functional Russian and may have a place to stay in Almaty. Keep me posted.

Hi, this is Marcos Fernandez from Spain. I am looking for partners to climb Lenin Peak or another 7000m mountain. I do not know if you are planning to go to Pamir/Tien Shan with your skis. I am asking you because I am a snowboarder and then I prefer to go to the mountains with snowboarders/skiers. My e-mail: marcos.fernandezdemoya@gmail.com
