Khan Tengri (7000m)

Khan Tengri bathed in evening light after a storm

Teams on the infamous snow arete high on Chapeyev

Salam moving up to Camp 3 - over the summit of Chapeyev

The first rocky step below the summit of Chapeyev

Enjoying the view from the summit of Chapeyev for the 2nd time

The descent to Camp 3 from the summit of Chapeyev

Camp 3 - All looking good for our summit attempt the following day

Camp 3 three days later as we aborted our attempt

Over Chapeyev in gale force winds

Salam descending the final rock step

A 12 hour descent of the fixed lines

The storm clears off Khan Tengri as we descend

The final heavily laden descent to the glacier

A great BBQ on a lovely summers evening!

Plenty of chicken with a token vegetable kebab!

Our taxi home
