Information, history

Uzlovaya Peak is an intermediate one for climbing along the crest of the ridge to Marble Wall Peak along the classic route. The peak is rarely used for independent ascents, for the most part it serves as an intermediate traverse of the Meridional Ridge to the top of the Marble Wall. The first attempt to climb the Marble Wall peak was made in 1935 by Soviet climbers led by E.S. Levin. The group reached an altitude of 5,000 - 5,300 meters above sea level, but an avalanche partially covered the tents on the slope, forced the climbers to retreat. On August 28, at 15 o'clock in 1946, a group of climbers consisting of seven Soviet climbers: V.S. Naumenko, E.V. Timashev, V.F. Gusev, V.I. Nikolsky, A.S. Mukhin, A.I. Ivanov and I.S. Daibog made the first ascent to the top of the Marble Wall. Climbing route: Lower camp 3950 meters above sea level – Nodal peak with a height of 5070 meters above sea level – Border Guard peak with a height of 5250 meters above sea level – Marble Wall peak with a height of 6150 meters above sea level. The expedition was organized by the All-Union Committee for Physical Culture and Sports under the Council of Ministers of the USSR. The expedition was also attended by: the head of the expedition - corresponding member of the Academy of Medical Sciences, Prof. A.A. Letavet, engineer S.G. Uspensky and the expedition doctor - Professor N.A. Fedorov.
