 Peak Ordzhonikidze (4,410 m), route on the northern wall, Category 4B 
 Having descended the Ordzhonikidze Pass towards the Levyi Talgar, move toward the middle part of the northern wall. The wall has a series of counterforts in the form of rock islands. 
The route goes on ice along the whole wall, first on a very wide and then narrowing corridor. The route should be done early in the morning in cold weather. The route is rather steep, and not much snow accumulates here, so it is convenient to be covered in the winter.
