Peak October, October Victory. In the Ak-Su Valley three Czech climbers—M. Holecek, D. Stastny, and O. Vasek—established a new route on the northwest face of peak October (3,805m). They called the ascent October Victory, 8+/A4. The route was climbed capsule style in nine days. Furthermore, Czechs Martin Klonfar and Peter Wagenknecht repeated the route Traschinenko (6A/5.10/A2,1982) on the northwest face of Pik Ak-Su in the Lailak region. The route consisted of 73 pitches, which they climbed in eight days, including the descent.
