This describes the first ascent of Peak Pobeda in the Tian Shan mountains of Eastern USSR; it is very scarce. Also first ascent of Mustagh Ata, Abalakov was the main climber. We have only had a few copies of this book in 35 years!.

From Wikipedia

Jengish Chokusu, Pik Pobedy, Mount Tomur

Elevation 7,439 metres (24,406 ft)
Location China-Kyrgyzstan
Range Tian Shan
Prominence 4,148 metres (13,609 ft) Ranked 16th

First ascent 1956  Vitaly Mikhaylovich Abalakov
Easiest route snow/ice climb

Jengish Chokusu is the highest mountain in the Tian Shan mountain range. It lies on the Kyrgyzstan-China border, in the Kokshaal-Too subrange, the highest part of the Tien Shan, southeast of lake Issyk Kul.

Names

The mountain's official name in Kyrgyz is Jengish Chokosu, which means 'Victory Peak'; its Russian name is Pik Pobedy (or Peak Pobeda) meaning the same. In Uighur, it is called Tmr, which is also the official name of the mountain in China. The Chinese name Tuom'er is a combination of the Uighur tomur, meaning 'iron' and Chinese feng meaning 'peak'.

Description

Jengish Chokusu is a massif, with several summits along its lengthyridge. Only its main summit breaks 7,000 m. It is located 16 km(10 miles) southwest of Khan Tengri (7,010 m / 22,998 ft), separated by the South Engilchek (or Inylchek) glacier, where base camps for both mountains are usually located. The massif runs at right anglesto the glaciers it spills into three alpine valleys on the north (Kyrgyzstan), all eventually running to the Engilchek glacier, thelargest in the Tian Shan. Its main summit is usually approached from the Zvozdochka (Russian for 'little star') glacier, which is coloureded with rocks from Jengish Chokusu.

Records

Jengish Chokusu is the highest mountain in Kyrgyzstan. Jengish Chokusu has the most northerly 7,000-metre rock in the world, and by geologists is considered the most northerly 7,000-metre mountain. Because mountains often contain ice caps on top of rock, mountaineers consider Khan Tengri, the Tian Shan's second highest peak, as the northernmost 7,000-metre summit.

The South Inylchek (Enylchek) Glacier and its side glaciers occupythe entire north side of Peak Jengish Chokusu. This glacier, currentlyat 62 km in length, is the fourth longest outside of the world's polarregions.


History

Although Jengish Chokusu is almost 1,500 ft higher, Khan Tengri was believed to be the highest peak in the range until Jengish Chokusu's survey in 1946. Jengish Chokusu's first verified ascent was in 1956 by Vitaly Abalakov's party though there are unsubstantiated reports of a successful 1939 attempt as well. The mountain was renamed Victory (Pobeda) Peak short after the USSR's victory in the Great Patriotic War (World War II).

A Chinese expedition climbed the peak from the Chinese side in 1977 : the expedition book makes no mention of the Russian first ascent and gives the impression that the Chinese ascent was the first climb. The first winter ascent of the peak was made by Valery Khrichtchatyi in February 1990.
