Four days on Kazbek  Sucess!

Me, together with my girlfriend Åsa and Vincent Brunner (GER) who we met at our guesthouse in the valley, summited Mount Kazbek in perfect weather 28 July. Day 1 we hiked to camp 1, day 2 we continued up to camp 2 at the Bethlemi hut. On summitday we left camp at 02:20 and stood on the summit at 10:00. It was a very long scramble through dirty and dry glacier until we reached good snow. Route finding in the dark was not too easy. A long and beautiful climb in very nice weather conditions. No doubt an extra day at camp 2 would have have been good for acclimatizaion.

Guesthouse Nazy in Gerengeti I can warmly recommend.

Normal Route  Sucess!

Went up by the normal route. Camped by the river one night and then by the Black Cross. Weather wasn't great so had a couple of storms and then another on summit day, just at the top so didn't actually see the mountain until we'd made it back down to the bottom. 3,300m of ascent from Kazbegi so very physical if you take your own food, tent, etc.

Direct from Meteo, 3B, Solo  Sucess!

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.
