The central area of the Borkoldoy range in SE Kyrgyzstan is a group of superb ‘alpine’ peaks (which are well-defended on every side by chains of slightly lower mountains) situated to the north of the Dankova group in the West Kokshaal-Too range.
The Borkoldoy range is a limestone massif situated north of the Dankova region of the West Kokshaal-Too. Apart from British expeditions in 1995 and 2002, which operated in the NE and SW corners of the group, the range is little-explored by mountaineers.
Good mixture of progressive instruction and learning, climbing and guiding. We climbed some very good mountains from good huts and made the best of the mixed weather conditions. The course also used a range of situations and locations to cover a wide range of skills and techniques. Donald Connolly · Classic AlpinISM (Instructional Course)
