Crag features

Mount Kazbek is a dormant stratovolcano and one of the major mountains of the Caucasus located on the border of Georgia's Kazbegi District and Russia's Republic of North Ossetia–Alania. It is the third-highest peak in Georgia (after Mount Shkhara and Janga) and the seventh-highest summit in the Caucasus Mountains. Kazbek is also the second-highest volcanic summit in the Caucasus, after Mount Elbrus.

Approach notes

Mount Kazbek is accessed via the town of Kazbegi on the Military Highway that runs to the Russian border. From here the former met station under the south side of the mountain can be reached in a day. This is used as a BC by all.
