The ridge is usually not covered with snow (except for in the winter) and the rocks are stable. The pre-summit rock wall of 12 meters could require technical climbing or could be passed by traverse.
Climbing to Mount Maliy Donguzorun is a great acclimation before ascending Mount Elbrus.
The rocky east ridge is easily seen and it takes 30 minutes to hike from the lifts to the low part of the ridge. The ridge takes 2-3 hour as an easy rock climb. Pitches and rope may be needed at the end of the ridge before the summit when traversing the pre-summit rock wall. The traverse is from the north side of the mountain.
