Last pearl of more than 250 routes in Guamkla crags06 September 2017
Belorussian climber Sergey Shferov realized another great ascent in Guanka crag, Causaso, doing the FA of Chronicles of Dive Bomber that he grades like 9a.
“This is a great route bolted by Tselischev in 2013. The first chain is 7c and I did it a lot of time ago. Then there is an important overhanging wall with three boulder problems. I tried it for five years cause I had not partner several time! The approach is one hour long and you have to di a 6b to reach the bottom of the route. I fell ten time at last boulder but August, 18th, thanks perfect conditions and status, thanks to my friend Nikita I did the FA.”
In this enormous area, there are more then 250 route and the ideal period is Summer-Autumn. Unfortunately, at the moment is a perfect spot just for Russian climbers but Sergey is working a lot to promote sport climbing in this and other areas also for Europeans climbers.
