Tien Shan

This multi-national team planned to climb new routes on peaks surrounding the little visited Dzhirnagaktu Glacier in the Western Kokshaal-too. They successfully climbed eleven routes, two of them being first ascents of prominent summits and three first ascents of high points of dubious prominence. Summit heights were approximately 5000m and standards ranged from PD to TD. In retrospect, they felt that the trip would have benefited from better weather if it had taken place a couple of weeks later.
