The highest mountains in Europe are not Mont Blanc, Mont Blanc de Courmayeur and Monte Rosa, but Elbrus, Shkhara and Dykh-tau. The Caucasus stretches for 600 miles from the Black Sea to the Caspian, the natural boundary between Europe and Asia. A wild and remote range, its foothills fought over right up to the second world war, its fiefdoms now once more asserting their independence, the summits of the Caucasus are significantly higher than those in the Alps and offer a valuable staging post between Alpine and Himalayan experience.

The Caucasus stretches for 600 miles from the Black Sea to the Caspian, the natural boundary between Europe and Asia.

On the Edge o f Europe is a fine reminder of what the Caucasus has to offer. This book in part records the proceedings of the successful Alpine Club conference held at Plas y Brenin, North Wales, in November, 1992. It recollects the brilliant early climbing and exploration by Freshfield, Dent, Mummery, Longstaff and Raeburn, and provides an exciting outline of the German ascent of Ushba south from Svanetia organized by Rickmers in 1903. A highlight was Robin Hodgkin conducting an entranced audience through slides of their visit in 1937.
