To understand the peculiarities of the ascent to Kazbek, it would be logical to compare it with the ascent to Elbrus. On the one hand, Kazbek is simpler, there are no volcanic gases in the atmosphere and it's much easier to breathe. The same miner usually starts here only at an altitude of 4800 m - on Elbrus she can easily "attack" another 3600 (even with the correct acclimatization schedule). At Kazbek, the assault camp is much closer to the summit, on the day of the ascent it will be necessary to climb only 700 meters (from 4300 to 5033 m). For comparison, storming Mount Elbrus from the North, it is necessary to fly up to 1900 meters per day (from 3740 to 5621). But on the other hand, on Kazbek, the road to the summit passes through a much more rugged terrain - there is a very steep slope with a huge number of cracks. Therefore, almost all the time we will move around in bundles. We must not forget about rockfalls ... In general, it will be fun - join :)

This version of the route of Demerdzhi (the most beautiful mountain in Crimea) for "children" groups, ie consisting of parents with children. In such hike can take children from 5 years. The route is simple, but still it is the mountains, so the child will need constant supervision. And in some areas will have to lead him by the arm. Therefore it is desirable (but not necessarily) that the child would be accompanied by both parents - father drags a heavy backpack (tent, food, sleeping bags, clothing, etc.), and my mother has a child.
