Pik Leipzig. Near Pik Lenina, there are still rarely visited lower peaks. On August 9, East Germans Ralf Brummer, Wolfgang Hempel, Erhard Klinger and Siegfried Wittig climbed the probably virgin P 5725 (18,783 feet). They completed the ascent from the upper part of the Achik Glacier via the snow plateau at 5100 meters and then the ridge. Klinger also climbed nearby P 5347 (17,543 feet). The name of Pik Leipzig has been approved by Soviet authorities.
