Asia, CIS, Bezingi Wall Traverse Attempt

Bezingi Wall Traverse Attempt. José Bermúdez and Neil Wilson attempted to make an alpine-style traverse of the committing 15 kilometer Bezingi Wall from Shkara (5200 meters) to Lyalver during August 1994. On the seventh day they retreated down the northeast rib of Jangi Tau East (5030 meters) due to a combination of bad weather and snow blindness (after a pair of sunglasses was dropped on the fourth day). This was the first point from which descent was possible.
