Ushba #1 by Peter Schön
Peter Schön: "Ushba (4710m) - the infamous beauty of the Caucasus. The meaning of the name is unclear, but has been translated from the Svan language as 'terrible mountain' or 'place of the Witches Sabbath' or from Karachay-Balkar into 'three peaks' (North, South and small Ushba). It is perhaps the most beautiful mountain in the Caucasus, but also one of the most difficult and dangerous, and few climbers who see it can escape its draw. Ushba is the source of many climbing tales, histories and tragedies."
