Mektep, meaning school in Kazakh, is located by the dihedral, to the left of the black streaks on the predominate wall. These climbs have the most logical bolting and best anchors that I've seen in the region (Bolted by Alex Klenov). The anchors are 2 bolts with chains and rap rings. This area receives intense sun from mid-day, on. I marked the bolts on one route and will mark the rest when I have a chance to go back.

NOTE: Helmets should be worn at all times in this area. The rock quality ranges from fair to poor and I have unexpectedly broken off sizable pieces of rock!

Getting There 

Hike up the boulder field from the road. Head to the left of the black streaks on the predominate wall.

Climb the bolts that are second from the left. With fairly thin moves to the first bolt and the last few bolts being runout (By KZ standards) it is a little bit of a heady lead. Again, small crimps and awkward side-pulls with ok feet. Fun! ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
