Rock and Ice climbing

  • Experience with Alex Chabot and Sam Bie

    When Sam Bie emailed me about their wish to visit Armenia with Alex Chabot and establish new routes on basalt columns then I realized that the rock climbing is going to rise on the new level in Armenia.

     
  • Back from Vacations

    Ok, now I’m happy with a sustainable climbing partner Jared Nielson, a Big Wall climber from California.

     
  • Seting 10 more sport climbs in Noravank Canyon

      10 new sport climbing routes (14 pitches) we set this September in Noravank Canyon. Our friend Martin Tučka from Czech Republic, who visited to our Armenian Rock Climbing Festival in 2013 and put number of sport routes here, was back again for this project.

     
  • Club Alpin Français youth in Armenia

      Club Alpin Français du pays de Gex youth team was hosted by the Armenian Alpine Club at the end of August for a rock climbing program in Noravank canyon and climbing the mount Aragats.

     

Mountaineering and Backcountry skiing

  • "Fox Mountains" ski-touring

    Dani and Miriam Domingo’s were just purchased their Black Diamond ski-touring equipment, and we had to find an appropriate destination to “celebrate” that event ;))

     
  • Mt Ushba south peak (4710m)

    When two guys, who had never met before and don’t know much about each other (besides couple of g-mails) immediately set of to climb a serious mountain from the meeting place – they call it “nonsense” in mountaineering, you will agree!

     
  • Ski Season 2021

       One of the best seasons in terms of snow abundance and stability during the past decade in Armenia. Although without ski-touring tourists this winter, we made it quite fun anyway!
