Rock climbing in Yerevan existed since eighties (or earlier), when our old generation started to climb on the rocks in Hrazdan gorge. The crags are located literally on the large center of Yerevan, below Yerevan Physics Institude and Spitak Rescue Center. The part of the sectors, such as "Channel", "Peninsula" and "Mngo" are located in the territory of Spitak Rescue Center, so you want to get a permit to climb in the area (sometimes it might be complicated). 

 There are 43 established rock climbing routes in Yerevan at the moment for bouldering, trad and sport climbing. Most of the routes are easy, beginners paradise! We didn't include few insignificant routes which are way easy or the rock quality is bad. The trad routes at sector "Physic Wall" are equipped with random fixed gear, but you need protection gear to make it safe. Be aware of vipers when walking in the gorge.
  The printed guide book with complete route information and good quality pictures is planned to be released by Up The Rocks club soon. In the guide book you will find detailed information about all the routes and climbing areas around Armenia. NOTE: the sector maps and topos will be periodically updated in response to active development of the climbing areas. For climbing guides, instructors and organized rock climbing trips in Armenia contact us: This email address is being protected from spambots.
