Alex Abramov from the city of Piatigorsk: Hello! Today, our school team of 8 people made a traverse of Mount Ostraya (Sharp). It was a good climbing ridge route. The ascent took 5 hours, that is, almost the whole day.
Rocks were partially in the snow. It was a good preparation for climbing in the big mountains. We have learned to belay with ropes. The weather was perfect: sunshine and no wind. After descending from the summit we climb for training on the west wall of the famous mountain. Everybody was happy. In the evening, we tried dishes of Caucasian cuisine.
For morning we plan to climb the highest peak of the region - Mount Beshtau (“five mountains” in translation).
