Climbed at night with full moon, strongly recommend! Best to summit by sunrise and descend via normal route before snow softens and gives easy access into crevasses.

Perfect climb on the hard packed snow, no crampones until the Seddle. Ideal views of all the Caucasus. Start from Bethlemi at 3.30, 10.30 on the top. Back to Kazbegi 19.00 the same day.

Had problems finding the way to the met station due to thick fog. Having originally intended to solo the mountain I was warned against this due to hidden crevasses. The local I ended up hiring to rope up with for the ascent got altitude sickness so I ended up soloing the last 500m anyway! I'm sure there is a moral to the story. Great views from the summit. Made it back to the met station by 10.45am and descended to Kazbegi that afternoon.

It was a perfect day for the summit. We had perfect snow conditions all along the ascent the summit day (Aug-04-2005), making the ascent to the summit a far more relaxing day than the ascent from the valley (1700 m) to the hut "Meteostation" (3700 m), when we had severe rain, later hail and wet snow. We had hardly any wind at the top, which is rather unique for the Kazbek. On the way down some snow.
