Description 

Here you will find some of the best single and multi-pitch sport climbs in the Almaty area. Details coming soon. Due to its high elevation, the climbing season is weather dependent but usually from late spring to fall.

Getting There 

You can take a bus or taxi to Medeu, ride the gondola to Shymbulak Ski Resort and hike from there, but it's going to take a few hours. The best way to reach this area is to drive. Keep driving past Symbulak and the road will turn into a 4WD trail. Continue on for 20-30 min and you will see some big walls on the east (left) side of the road. The road gets pretty bad so you'll need something with fairly high clearance. We typically park and walk after the 1st major switchback.

Climbing Season

Central Bastion Route 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b PG13  Asia : Kazakhstan : ... : Gates of Tuyuk-Su
This 5-pitch sport route (climb #3 on the Okytbrenok Peak topos) includes a variety of climbing styles, a sense of adventure and great views of the valley. It comes into the sun around noon and can be very cold in the morning. I forget the exact number of bolts for each pitch but I think the 5th pitch had 13 or 14 (max), maybe carry 15 draws to be on the safe side. At least 3/4 (if not all) the rack should be alpine draws because of the zig-zaging nature of the bolts. Pitch 1- 5....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
