Kazbek Trip Report (#3478)
- Signed By: Brian Williamson
- Date submitted: August 29, 2000
- Date(s) climbed: 24 August 2000
Try to spend time at altitude, but below the met station at around 3600m before the climb. Going straight to 3600 may lead to symptoms of altitude sickness and make the climb hard going.
You can climb around the NE edge of the Ortsveri Glacier to approach Kazbek from the NW, but do not return this way due to the risk of rockfall later in the day.
