Dykh-Tau is a massive, technically challenging mountain, topped by twin towers. The lower eastern peak (16,900 ft.) is separated from the main peak by a steep, narrow saddle. The mountain is steep on all sides, and is predominantly a snow and ice mountain, but windswept rock walls and ridges add variety to the superb climbing challenges here.
