Text Dispatch: Lenin Update

I think there was the first summit of the year today. After my rough first trip up the mtn I went to bc to recover and get the last of my summit gear. Boris went to c3 and is now going to bc to rest. I’m back up at c2 and headed up tomorrow. I’m climbing with Ishmael and Rufat, experienced and kind guys from Azerbaijan. With good weather and health we may try for the summit as early as the 19th.
