Mt. Erydag, Northwest Face. A team of the Dagestan Republic Rescue Service, led by V. Sogokon and comprising A. Goriaev and U. Slobodeniuk, climbed the right side of the northwest face of Mt. Erydag (3925m) via the 1982 Mikhalov route (6A) from September 15-19. Mt. Erydag is seldom visited, and the ascent of the ca. 800- to 1000-meter vertical rock face was a good effort for the Caucasus.
