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.


The following weather information is provided for the nearest supported peak. The weather icons reflect weather conditions from the base of the mountain, while the wind, temperature and humidity reflect conditions at the summit.
