Djenghi-Djer Expedition

The objective was first ascents of unclimbed peaks over 4,000m in the Djenghi-Djer mountains of Kyrgyzstan. The only previous expedition to the range in 2016 approached the range from the east, and travelled along its full length. Time spent travelling limited that available for climbing. This team approached from the west via Naryn, selected one valley in which to set up a base camp, and thoroughly explore the area over a two and a half week period. This plan worked well, and they completed ten first ascents in the range 4,000m to 4,700m.
