Asia, Former USSR, Pamir Alai

Pamir Alai. A French group led by Pierre Faivre was composed of talented young alpinists: Frédéric Gentet, Robin Givet and Zébulon Roche. They made some excellent new rock routes, particularly on P 4240 and P 3850. They gave up their attempt on Piramidalny because of potential avalanche danger.
