South Caucasus. Armenia. Autumn rockclimbing program and sightseeing.

When the summer heat loses its fierce power, parched dusty earth of Armenia sighs with relief. The most beautiful time of year - autumn comes to the Caucasus. Autumn comes, and brings with it the most bright, variegated colors, it dresses in red velvet crown the mountain forests, heaps of fruit orchards. Bunches of grapes bent down the elastic rod – the berries, saturated with sun are preparing to become a sparkling and delicious wine. This is a time of generous harvest, winemaking and deserved long waited holidays. Autumn in Armenia – that is an open chest with the most unexpected jewels - gold and purple leaves, ruby drops of the young wine, sapphire apricots - whole generosity of this harsh land is revealed in this short season. What does it mean to taste the Armenian autumn? Keep in mind the heady taste of grapes and apricots, breathe ringing, crystal clear mountain air and fall in love with that tiny country where people are able to smile through their eyes, able to give for free something that cannot be sold nor bought, able to share their pride and love for this land stingy by appearance.

One of the best rockclimbing programs of MCS AlexClimb we hold in Armenia, in the most beautiful season of the year - autumn. This time in Armenia there is a most comfortable weather, the most blue sky, the very ripe fruit and very tasty wine. What else you real climbers need for being happy?! Our program introduces its participants to the three main rockclimbing areas of Armenia - Yeghegnadzor (Djokhki Dzor - Gorge of Hell) – comfortable, secluded valley located away from roads and settlements - a real paradise for rockclimbers. Noravank gorge - a narrow canyon that leads from the village of Areni (Armenia winemaking center) to the Noravank monastery - amazingly beautiful monument of medieval architecture of Armenia. The third region of Armenia, which we surely have to visit – this is Tatev - fantastically beautiful mountain area, situated at the foot of the Zangezur range - here, among the longest cable car leading to the ancient Tatev monastery, there is a rockclimbing sector which name is Wings of Tatev, unique in its kind rock massif, where climbing routes pass through the smooth edges of the giant basalt columns!

Planning the trip, we take as basis our standard rockclimbing 10 days variant which allows us to combine climbing with sightseeing and recreations. We do not limit ourselves to just climbing rocks - for us it is more than sport - it is our way of life - active, bright and full of adventures! This 10 days program is developed for people, who has small rock climbing experience or has none at all and who would like to try what is the rockclimbing. For participation in this program we recommend to take a brief AlexClimb Course of indoor rockclimbing in Moscow to get the basic climbing skills before the beginning of the rockclimbing program in Armenia.

The First Principle of MCS AlexClimb
The first rule, by which we are guided in developing of the program - it is Safety. Professional Guides lead the group, only the high quality certificated equipment is used. All that guarantees the highest possible level of your Safety, and it is the most important part of our work.

Our Principles

AlexClimb Rule #1 - Safety First

From the very beginning of our activity, here nearly 16 years, the first Principle of work of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb is the Safety Priority. On the basis of this Principle all process of training is based, all programs and rounds are developed and carried out only within this main principle. We consider that at professional approach to development of programs, at personal discipline and correctly put motivation - occupations by mountaineering and rock-climbing are COMPLETELY safe. And from the return - all troubles and accidents in our sport come from nonprofessionalism, from ignorance or neglect by elementary standards of safety, from irrational motivation, from revaluation of own forces and opportunities. All these prerequisites we COMPLETELY EXCLUDE in our work - ours Rock-climbing, Ice climbing and Mountaineering are based on one Principle - the Safety Priority. In rock-climbing, mountaineering and ice climbing, the Priority of Safety of MCS AlexClimb-is your personal security and comfort irrespective of, than we are engaged - we train muscles and we work technology of the movement in the sports hall and on the rock climbing wall, we make the way through snowstorm to top or we relax on golden sand of the Caribbean beach after hot day of trainings on rocks. The Safety priority - the main credo of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb.

AlexClimb Rule #2 - Leave No Trace

Closely interacting with Nature, working with the active programs in mountains, woods, lakes and rivers, we perfectly understand the importance of carefull and respectfull bahavior towards the Nature, for its resources. From the very beginning of our outdoor-activity we adopted rules of  Leave No Trace technique - the standard of behavior of the person accepted in all the civilized world in relation to environment and especially - to the wild nature. After all on the relation of people to the nature near which they exist, itself can draw dalekoidushchy conclusions on the relation of these people to... Where and as we didn't travel - we don't reserve any garbage, we try to reduce whenever possible our influence on environment to a minimum. We clear earlier zagryazyonny tourist parking of the left garbage, we take out and we take out to utilization places that to us other people left there. We consider that only thus, at personal individual consciousness of each citizen, each tourist, climber or autotraveller, we will be able to keep the nature surrounding us in its state, natural, suitable for life, - in it pledge of the healthy future for ourselves and our children.

AlexClimb Rule #3 - Sober Concious

The position of AlexClimb Mountain and rockclimbing School regarding healthy lifestyle is quite clear - we consider that only sober consciousness is capable to fill sincere emotions,  to sympathize, to enjoy life in all its variety. Bright various enjoyable life is possible only on condition of keeping the absolute sobriety and purity of consciousness. Any way of obscuring our perception of reality is intended to do harm to our consciousness and bring harm to our physical health, to replace the true values by false ones, to destroy us physically - to turn us into flabby, weak, senseless, gray herd with empty hazy eyes. We don't force anybody to our point of view, everyone has a God's gift of making his own choice and to destroy himself if that is what he wants... But in AlexCilimb Mountain Climbing School we accept quite certain and very simple set of rules: neither alcohol, nor drugs.
