Pik Kommunizma. I led a 10-member Polish team to the International Soviet Pamir Camp in 1984. All, including the three women, managed to climb Pik Kommunizma (7483 meters, 24,550 feet). Starting on July 27, Ewa Panejko-Pankiewicz and Amalia Kaploniak reached the summit on August 2 via the Burevestnik Buttress as a ladies only team. From July 27 to August 4 Pawel Mularz completed an alpine-style traverse via the Borodkin and Burevestnik routes. The best ascent was made by Marek Danielak, Miroslaw Dasal and Lech Kiedrowski. They made the third ascent of the Tadzhik Buttress from the For-tambek Glacier, continued to the top via the Pamir Plateau and descended the Borodkin route.
