After you reach the "Skovorodka", the Camp 5300 site is becoming clearly seen on the down part of rocky spur.

Camp 5300 site - no summer at all, continuous winter, but sometimes very sunny... Lot of space to pick the tent, BTW.

After leaving the Camp 5300, you go straight up to the crest which leads to the Razdelnaya ("Separating") peak. Camp 5300 is seen at the very bottom.

Then, you have to proceed up to the Razdelnaya summit. The altitude here is about 5,700 m.

When the good weather, the trail on the snow is clearly seen and climbers make sorta "snow caravan".

Here you have a choice: stay a bit lower from the top, but can make a snow wall to protect the tent from the wind...

...or go further and stay closer to the summit on the Razdelniy Col, but no chance to hide from the wind...

Next place for assault camp is at the 6,500 m elevation. The same camp site can be used on the way back (in the case of lack of time to descend to Razdelnaya camp).
