Description

Buddha Rock is located beside the Ili River in the Tamgaly-Tas gorge, just north of the Kapchagai Reservoir and about 2.5 hours northeast of Almaty. The name comes from large petroglyphs of Buddhist deities that are located in the area.

There are numerous TR anchors to support a variety of grads from 5.6-5.12 (possibly harder). Although there are bolts hammered in all over with place, only a few sport routes are safe. Most bolts seem to have been placed with no regard to actual routes and were possibly placed as practice. A few trad routes exist but they see little traffic and are dirty.

Getting There

Drive to Kapchagay, go past the dam and where the road forks, go left. Continue several miles until you see an orange sign on the right side of the road. Take a left onto the dirt road and follow it for several miles south. Once you reach a fork in the dirt road, go left until you reach the gates for Ili River.
