Summit of mt.Maliy Donguzorun (center of the photo...

Description 

The mountain is located in Elbrus region, around 1km from mt. Elbrus. The summit is well observed from Terskol town below, however not easy to identify from the long ridge.

The ridge is usually not covered with snow (ex.for winter), the rocks are stable. The pre-summit rock wall of 12 meters could require technical climbing or could be passed by traverse.

Climbing to mt.Maliy Donguzorun is a great aclimatisation before accent to mt.Elbrus

Location 

The route starts from the top station of mt.Cheget lifts, which bring at 3200m. just below the east ridge of Maliy Donguzorun.

The rocky east ridge is well observed and it takes 30 minutes to hike from the lifts to the low part of the ridge. The ridge is a 2-3 hour 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 travers is from the north side of the mountain.

Protection 

Traditional alpine, pitches may be required at the final part before the summit. Crampons and ice pitches required in winter.
