Mount Tetnuldi, Georgia: Temur Kurdiani solos new route up West Face

di

Temur Kurdiani has made the solo first ascent of a new route up the West Face of Tetnuldi in the Greater Caucasus Mountain Range in Georgia.

Georgian mountaineer Temur Kurdiani has forged an exciting direct line up the West Face of Tetnuldi, a prominent 4858m peak in the Greater Caucasus Mountain Range in the Upper Svaneti region of Georgia.

Starting from a high camp at 4000m, on the 16th of October the 23-year-old alpinist spent just 4 hours climbing the new 700m route up past 80° ice and 90° granite to reach the ridge at 4700m before continuing to the summit.



Kurdiani was not alone on the mountain; his friends Nika Lebanidze and Mishka Khorguani ascended the normal route via the ridge, while Rati Ratiani remained in the camp.
