Caucasus: Tetnuld, Gestola and Shota Rustaveli

First of all, this is a great site and community you've all got here. I've ended up at this peak many times over the years, by different routes! I'm pleased to finally be posting here.

I'm planning a mountaineering trip to the central Caucasus this August/September. My original plan involved crossing from Georgia to Russia, or Russia to Georgia, by some as-yet-undecided route. To be clear: is such border crossing prohibited in both directions? Is ...

Mulhacen in summer

Hi all. Myself and my hiking/climbing buddy are looking to do our first Euro trip climb next August and we've settled on Mulhacen in the Spanish Sierra Nevada. There seems to be limited info on the internet regarding climbing reports and details of the different ascent routes and what gear/experience may be needed. Anyone on here climbed and have any advice?

Cheers folks :)

Two Day Alps Climbs - August

Hi All,

I wanted to head to the Alps over the August bank holiday weekend with my wife & climb a mountain of about 4000m in height, guided. Nothing technical please. I did some of my own research & came across Gran Paradiso in Italy, but it seems to be very popular & crowded. Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't mind doing lesser known peaks, but we want to reach an actual summit & ...

Haute route unguided

scheming to go ski the Haute Route with my wife next week... Unguided (Verbier variation) .
Any thoughts?
background: we hiked it in October a few years ago... got into Zermatt just intime to miss the first major snowstorm of the year. We've also spent a few weeks skiing in these regions 2 years ago, and spend our normal winters tagging 10th Mt. huts across Colorado.

we're not bothered by dealing with some minor crevasse ...

Mt Blanc Route and acclimatisation advice

Hi, apologies for asking about something that has probably been covered before but anyway here goes! My girlfriend and I are going to be in Italy for about 10 days, early to mid-June and would like to have a bash at Mt Blanc if the weather is right. We live in New Zealand and have done a bit of mountaineering so I am fairly comfortable with the climb. The acclimatisation aspect is my main concern ...

Beginner Climbs in Europe

Hi all, first post on the forums and love what I'm reading so far. Just looking for some advice on good climbs/scrambles in Europe. I've got Snowden in August and Ben Nevis next year but am now ready and looking for something higher and more challenging outside of the UK. Happy to tackle strenuous routes, not adverse to hard scrambling either. Any advice would be great.

Thanks All x
