Mount Kazbek

Mount Kazbek

From £2,345
Altitude 5,033m Grade: 2B

Mount Kazbek is a stunning 5000m glaciated peak that is often climbed as an alternative to Elbrus. The ascent is made from Georgia (it is not in Russia!) via the standard climbing route that ascends west from Kazbegi up the Gergeti Glacier to this observatory and continues to the prominent pass west of the peak, then turns east along the ridge to the summit. It is suitable for those who are confident Mountain Walkers with a good level of fitness. We can provide instruction on the use of crampons during the acclimatization phase of the expedition and therefore it is not an essential pre-requirement.
