I'm looking for a partner for some climbs in the Caucasus. My current plan is to rent a house in Mestia, Georgia to use as a base from late August to October. Some peaks I'm looking at are Ushba (Georgian route), Kazbek (SE face), Shkhara (Georgian route). Mostly mixed routes around D/D+. If you also can deal with Russian bureaucracy and willing to get a visa, then I'm also looking at Elbrus and something in Bezengi (maybe Koshtan). I have a Russian visa for Sep 22 - Oct 21, no visa is required in Georgia. Flights to Kutaisi are reasonable, cost of living is very low and it's a completely different climbing culture compared to the Alps (who needs lifts when you have horses?) If you're interested, please PM me.
