Currently on a expedition to

Peak Pobeda (7.439m)

from 17th of july to 18th of August

 

The initial plan was to go to Peak Communism and Korzhenevskaya, however the helicopter didn’t go and the team had to change plans! They now diverted their expedition to Peak Pobeda (7.439m). After summiting Khan Tengri in 2017, the team made an attempt on this difficult mountain. This time they almost have four weeks to get the job done!

what is

Project 5 Peaks

 

The Snow Leopard challenge sets the  goal to climb Central Asia's five highest mountains. All of which are higher then 7.000m and thus only for the experienced mountaineer. In 2016 the team climbed Peak Lenin (7.134m), in 2017 they climbed Khan Tengri (7.010m) and made an unsuccessful attempt on Peak Pobeda (7.439m). In summer 2019 the team will attempt Peak Communizma (7.495m) and Peak Korjenevskaya (7.105m).
