Description 

This is a limestone sport climbing crag with routes from 5.8 to 5.12 and loads of potential for development. This is a canyon that provides both sun and shade at any given time of the day, depending what side of the canyon you choose to climb.

This location has on site camping, although space in the canyon is limited and the best camp sites are at the base some of the climbs. Additional camping space is available at the mouth of the canyon.

Getting There 

From the capitol city of Yerevan drive south on the M-2. After passing Tigranashen, watch for the intersection with the H-10(Approximately 6.8 KM). Approximately 350 meters past this intersection take the farmland access road on the south of the M-2 (watch out for the 3 meter wide sink hole in the middle of the road). Follow this access road for approximately700 meters. The entrance to Hells Canyon can be seen to the south. The entrance is marked by a small religious building in the hillside above the canyon.
