Rock and Ice climbing

  • Chichkhan WI3

    During the warm winter in Armenia, the only colds for ice climbing we found on early Feb on the north of Armenia, famous waterfall “Trchkan” to which no ice pick has touched before.

     
  • After the Festival…(AfterFest)

    With the end of the Festival our motivation didn´t end! We saw so many lines, still unclimbed that we decided to spend one more week in Armenia for more first ascents!

     
  • Catching up the cold for warm up

    The winter of 2015 in Armenia is again not that cold for ice tool picks, but you must be ready to skip your office in any week day that it goes under -5c if you don’t like to miss ice climbing in the season.

     
  • First Noravanq climbing this season

    On Sunday afternoon Vahe, Alla, Marina and me decided to go to Noravank for climbing. Soon we met our friends there and joined to a picnic. 

     

Mountaineering and Backcountry skiing

  • "Game Ridge" backcountry first descent, solo

        I finally skied one of my projects in Fox Mountains, solo. My skiing buddies were busy to support me on this backcountry trip, and the weather is warming drastically in the valley now, so it had to be done now or postponed to next year which I didn't like for some reasons.
