Posted on: March 12th, 2010 by Erik Lambert

Participants between 16 and 30 years old are invited to participate in a mountaineering expedition in the Kazbek Gorge Mountains of Georgia. This event is part of the Global Youth Summit, a series of international summer climbing camps and other mountaineering events for young people that promote environmental efforts, peace and cooperation between countries.

Young members from all UIAA associations (AAC membership meets this requirement) are welcome to join this event. Participants under 18 must be accompanied by a leader from their own federation.
