Soviet Ascents. Reports from Moscow indicate that Russian climbers continue to be active. One 21,650-foot peak in the Pamirs in Tadzhikistan was climbed for the first time and named for the cosmonaut Titov. Another mountain in the Tien Shan near Chinese Turkestan was climbed by four Siberians, who named it Pik Kosmanavtov (Cosmonaut Peak).
