Bezengi Wall as it appears from the Bezengi Glacie...


Huge area, thousands of routs from one-day fun climb to multi-day high-altitude traverses.
Windy, cold, unstable weather. Mostly granite, lots of ice even in summer, tons of snow.
Moderately crowded and well-managed by local mountaineering authorities.

Getting There 

From Moscow to Mineralnie Vody (2h flight or 36h train), then taxi (better arrange with local mountaineering camp for a bus to pick you up in the airport) about 250 km.
