Equipment for Lenin Peak (7134 m.)

Equipment for Lenin Peak (7134 m.) expedition

  1. Clothing must be layered. In the mountains, it is important not to freeze or overheat. Several layers of clothing will allow you to quickly respond to the vagaries of nature, putting them on and taking them off if necessary. The first layer is thermal underwear that will wick moisture away from your body. The second layer is insulating, and usually it is understood as several wardrobe items: thin fleece, denser fleece, down jacket (“puff”). The third layer is a windproof but breathable layer. Usually this is a jacket and trousers made of modern synthetic materials, it is better if it is a membrane fabric.
  2. The mountains have very strong ultraviolet radiation. Therefore, you should always wear a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen with an SFP level of 30-50. Even on cloudy days, the light reflected from the snow can cause severe burns to the skin and retinas of the eyes.
  3. Take only the most necessary equipment with you. At altitude, every extra gram will slow down the movement. Therefore, it is worth considering in advance each item of equipment, weighing it, and choosing the lightest, and not the most beautiful, from several almost identical ones.

If you are missing something from the equipment, you can rent the missing one from us. But we would like to know about it in advance.
