Pamir Mountains. The yearly Soviet International Mountaineering Camps have become more and more popular. Last summer climbers from 18 countries participated, 45 climbers from Switzerland, 42 from the USA and 34 from Bulgaria. High quality routes and a general rise in climbing standards typified the activity. A number of teams climbed Pik Kommunizma. Perhaps the most notable foreign ascent was of the 2500-meter-high south face of Pik Kommunizma by five Bulgarians between July 27 to August 2.
