6 the first group (Zhumayev, Pivtsov, Chumakov, Urubko) came to Camp 1 (5100
7 the same group set the Camp 2 on 6100 m.
8 The first group in very bad weather conditions fixed 550 m of ropes and
set the Camp 3 (intermediate) on 6500 m. The further work on the route would be
too dangerous in such conditions.
9 The first group came back to BC (4100 m) for the rest. The second group
(Lavrov, Litvinov, Molgachev, Raspopov and Bogomolov) went up to the intermediate
Camp 3 (6500 m)
10 the trio Lavrov, Litvinov and Bogomolov began to climb above the
Camp 3 with the task to fix ropes and moving the Camp 3 higher. They fixed 250
m of ropes, and came back to Camp 3, because haven't find the good place for the
Camp. It appeared that it needs apparently 500-600 m of ropes for the further
establishing the route.
11 the second group came back to the BC (4100) for the rest. The same day
joined group of climbers from Italy, Spain, USA and France, leading by Simone
