Vitaly Mikhaylovich Abalakov (January 13, 1906 in Yeniseysk - May 26, 1986 in Moscow) was a Soviet/Russian mountaineer and inventor. Brother of Yevgeniy Abalakov, another famous alpinist, he made the first Soviet ascent of Lenin Peak in 1934 and two more ascents of this mountain. In 1936 he also made the ascent of Khan Tengri. In 1938, he and others from his team were arrested by NKVD and were under investigation until 1940. He was accused of "open public propaganda" of western mountaineering techniques and "diminishing" domestic alpinists' achievements and being a "German spy." Many of the alpinists arrested with Vitaly Abalakov were executed.
