Climbs at this crag
As for me I have not ever visited more calm and serene region in entire Caucasus, not to mention Krasnaya Poliana 2014 Winter Olympics center which is overcrowded by the police .Under Russian regulations both foreign and mixed origin groups are permitted to climb.In case of mixed group at least one of the Russian members would possess a qualification of Mountain Guide. All the groups are registered at base camp office to which you would 4 times a day submit information on your ascent progress and be back at least an hour before previously stated date. In case you twice did not submit your message or did not get back an hour before deadline a group of climbers, one of them a doctor, starts from base camp any weather.
