Garni Gorge has been officially closed to all climbing. As a result, all anchors in the canyon have been removed. The details are not fully known, but the closure has to do with international climbers not respecting the bolt ban in the canyon. It is unfortunate that the climbing community has lost a such an amazing place.

Getting There 

J&J crag requires crossing a sketchy wire bridge that is made up from tractor seats and bicycle frames.
