Kazakhstan to Mongolia, any way around Barnaul?

Looking for the shortest and least populated route to Mongolia from Kazakhstan. I wonder if anyone has taken the country roads and bypassed Barnaul in the Altai area of Russia? Are the roads really bad? Have 4x4 but would rather not break anything lol.

Uzebekistan visa on the way through Russia and Kazakhstan

I have made an error in my trip planning: it did not occur to me that I required an Uzebekistan visa as a Canadian citizen.
