Video: An Expedition to Climb Ushba - A Remote Mountain in Georgia

Ushba is a remote peak located in the Caucasus Mountains of Georgia. Standing 4710 meters (15,452 ft) in height, Ushba is a daunting climb that begins with a trek into the starting point on foot. In this video, we join a team of climbers that includes Samuel Anthamatten, Markus Eder, and Leo Slemett as they travel to Ushba to not only climb the mountain, but also make the first ski descent as well. As you can imagine, it is quite an experience.
