Almaty Kazakhstan's Images

Almaty, Kazakhstan
Description: There is a wealth of adventure bouldering in the Almaty region of Kazakhstan. The rock is very solid, and the locals are very friendly.   History: The locals don't boulder much, so the vast majority of the boulders are virgin. The only area I saw any bouldering activity was at the Ili river. Even there, many of the better lines were virgin. Since no one boulders, there are no guides, and no spotters. You are on your own, bring pad and a good attitude, because the local climbers are keen to meet you, but will think you are nuts for not wanting to toprope with them.
Camping: There is a hotel at the Tian Shan Observitory (15$ a night) and camping is allowed at both the Ili river and Bolshoe lake.
