men, as either partners or individual, are of course invited too. these trips will be run together, as a kind of road trip thru Iran’s best ice areas, climbing the classics and putting up new ice and mixed lines. vast potential exists and our local friends are highly motivated to show us around with their famous Persian hospitality.
JAPAN WALLS & LINK-UPS
THE BLACK ARTS (ROPE SOLOING, DRYTOOLING & AID)
VANGUARD CLIMBING MEANS DOING WHAT WORKS WHEN THE RULES HAVE CHANGED. WHETHER ITS A FIRST ASCENT ON A TIBETAN 6000M UNNAMED PEAK, A WALL IN IRAN EVERYONE ELSE IS TOO SCARED OF, OR REINTERPRETING JAPANESE HARD ROUTES WITH AN INTERNATIONAL MINDSET, THE EVOLUTION OF CLIMBING HAS NEVER BEEN COMFORTABLE OR COVERED BY A GUIDEBOOK.
SINCE 2009 ICECLIMBINGJAPAN HAS PUT ITSELF ON THE LINE AND SHOWN THAT WHAT WE DO WORKS. EXPERIMENTING WITH WITH IDEAS IN THE MOUNTAINS OF JAPAN HAS TAKES US TO THE GREATER RANGES AND PLACES LIKE K2, EASTERN TIBET, KYRGYZSTAN & IRAN IN THE FINEST STYLE WE KNOW – SMALL GROUPS, FIRST ASCENTS, IN WITH THE LOCALS, INDEPENDENT & MINIMAL FOOTPRINT.
LIFE IS SHORT. DEMAND IS HIGH. SOME CHANCES DON’T COME TWICE.
