South Inylchek Glacier, Various Ascents. It was reported that in this popular region, which gives access to the well-known Khan Tengri (6995 m) and Peak Pobeda (7439 m), an important repetition was made when a four-man team from St. Petersburg (P. Kniazev, A. Pashin, V. Reznik, and S. Uspenski) climbed the main summit of Pobeda via the long traverse over the west ridge from Pik Neru (6744 m) and the intervening Vasha Pshaveli (Pobeda West, 6918 m). It was further reported that Pobeda received many ascents last year (25 by Russian climbers), and Khan Tengri saw 30 climbers to its summit. (High Mountain Sports 165)
