The idea to dedicate a peack to Fidel Castro origined from the Mountaineering Federation of North Ossetia: Pioneers - the joungests - have selected the summit, then it has been indicated to Google Maps, and the mountain was named. 
North Ossetia gave this special homage to Fidel Castro because an Ossetian hero - General Issa Pliev - was the leader of the Soviet forces in Cuba during the 'missiles' crisis' in the early 1960s.
As far as me I think it's a good way to celebrate a great man. In a South America dominated by ferocious dictatures openly sponsored by the USA, Cuba has been an oasis of peace, equality and freedom. Yes, freedom: ask people of Cile or Argentina. A Revolution isn't a gala party Mao Tze-Dong used to say and Cuba had to defend its one against the most powerful capitalist state in the world. Sum up, it succeeded.
