    tho south ossetia could want to be coded as yo for yugo ossetiya as she calls herself if indeed she ever gets to have a real iso code at all nevertheless

      tho south ossetia could want to be coded as yo 
      for yugo ossetiya as she calls herself
      if indeed she ever gets to have a real iso code at all
      nevertheless
      assuming an eventual digraph of os because tricountry2009 has 
      then the geosrue & geosruw tripoints 
      as they might as well be tentatively called 
      have long been manifest as subdivisional trijunctions on soviet topos
      on the same kavkaz ridge we visited last week at gora gvandra aka abgeru

      goesrue is depicted at a ridge junction peak evidently labeled gora vatsiglars 
      elev 3573m in roughly 42n37 44e14 on this downloadable topo
      tho vatsiglars gets no encouragement as a name of any kind at all from google

      & geosruw is depicted at a ridge junction peak also named in this case gora chanchakha 
      elev 4461m in roughly 42n45 43e48 on this downloadable topo
      while chanchaka does at least get confirmation as a properly transliterated name but still no hits on google as a mountain or gora

      photos of anything on kavkaz ridge are rare
      except for mount elbrus of course 
      the tallest mountain in europe  
      about 100 miles to the west of ossetia & thus much closer to abkhazia

      but thats about it

      trypointing terra incognita here by & large
