Left the barrels (3800m) at about 2 am, and caught the snowcat up to the Pushtakova Rocks. Weather was terrible, strong winds and whiteout conditions. Summited at 9.45 am with Scott (Oz), Simon (UK), Igor (Russ) and our guide Marina (Russ).
Made it back down to the barrels at 3 pm. The Caucasus is an absolutely stunning mountain range.
