Expedition to Khan-Tengri peak (7010 m)

Tengri-Tag ridge, in eastern part of which is Khan-Tengri Peak, origins in the west from the place of confluence northern and southern branches of Inylchek glacier with top of 5211 m steeply rising of rocky cliff called “Battleship”, which divided the flows of Inylchek glacier. Undoubtedly, the Jewel of the Tien Shan is the wonderful pyramid of Khan-Tengri . Khan-Tengri peak, which is situated in the northerly and remote part of the great Asian mountains, takes the second place among the highest mounts.

However, discoverers of the Peak did not leave any geographical coordinates, or simply description of its location. Passed more than 1,200 years till famous Russian traveler P.P. Semenov, subsequently received proud prefix «Tian-Shansky,» during his travels in Tian-Shan Mountains in 1857 from the crest of Terskey Alatau saw a chain of snow giants, and among of them the Peak, well-known from ancient times.

Expedition to Khan-Tengri peak (7010 m)

The local people call the white peaks ‘The Mountains of Heaven’. It was a Soviet expedition which first conquered the summit of Khan-Tengri peak in 1931, via the West Ridge and West Col. Soviet teams have climbed the majority of Khan-Tengri’s faces and ridges since then.

Route description

The West Ridge of Khan Tengri is a classic route that presents a reasonable objective for competent mountaineers. The ridge rises from the West Col, which is very enjoyable, straightforward ‘scrambling’ for the most part, with steep rocky steps linked with snow patches.

There are only a couple of sections which require more care; such as the vertical rock step of about 50ft at 6,800m and the knife above. In terms of equipment needed once on the route, a single ice axe is sufficient, although the addition of a ski pole might be useful.

Expedition to Khan-Tengri peak (7010 m)

From the snow caves (near the West Col) a short snow/ice slope of 40o, which is fixed with rope, leads up to the West Col (6000m). The Col is narrow and heavily corniced and the top of the fixed ropes should be carefully noted. A traverse along the Col leads to the mixed ground of the West Ridge where the angle steepness. The route then follows the West Ridge via a number of small bivouac sites at 6200m, 6400m and 6700m.

Almost the entire ridge is fixed with rope, but these need to be used with caution as their condition and the anchors are variable (the ropes are renewed at the beginning of every summer season by local guides). The route follows the crest of the ridge with snow and scrambling interspersed with steeper rock sections until 6,700m. Here a traverse rightwards across snow slopes reaches a steep rock step of some 20m which is severe in standard.

Above this the route climbs into a snow basin and then traverses out rightwards again to exit onto a short steep knife edged snow ridge of some 50m which is very exposed. This is followed leftwards to a steeper section of mixed ground.

Above this, the fixed rope ends and there remains around 300m of easy snow climbing for half an hour to reach the summit. The true summit is rather difficult to find, being a large flat snow dome, so the summit point is marked by a metal tripod.

The descent from the summit is very quick using the fixed ropes. The snow caves can be reached in about 3 hours.
