Take time to acclimatize properly. There are many shortcuts on the way to the summit (chair lifts, snow cats), but take your time - ascend slowly. Despite an overall long ascent, I had to take Diamox on summit day to be able to move on. I reached the summit at 11 o'clock (having left Prijut around 0.30), exhausted but euphoric. The descent was incredibly tiresome as the beautiful weather quickly turned into thick fog and snowfall. An unforgettable adventure. Thanks Marcin, for bringing me over here.
