Rock and Ice climbing

  • Dancing the vertical and horizontal lines of Armenia

    Before reading an article in Rock & Ice and watching Sam Bie’s excellent film on Armenian climbing, we virtually knew nothing about this little land locked country, except for the genocide and their world famous wrestlers.

     
  • Rock Us in the Caucasus - Armenia

    Rumors about this amazing program of rock climbing and mountaineering in Armenia and Georgia had been started in between American Alpine Club and Alpine Club of Iran years ago, in 2011..

     
  • 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. 

     
  • 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.

     

Mountaineering and Backcountry skiing

  • Aghvan Chatinyan (Armenian hard man)

    Aghvan Chatinyan was born on December 14, 1927 in Vardapluri, a village in Stepanavan, Armenia. 

     
  • "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 ;))

     
  • "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. 

     

     
  • Alexey Shustrov in Armenia again!

    A great pleasure and fun is to ski with a good friend Alexey Shustrov, who investigated so much to promote ski touring in Armenia.
