In reply to UKC Gear: Can't wait to go. I can't for the life of me think why Rockfax hasn't covered this area sooner!
In reply to UKC Gear:


Are those aretes really unclimbed? Amazing!

I've claimed pretty much every first ascent in the area, lived here for over ten years. Got a feat tan

The complete Dry Tooling guide to Almscliff would be a more worth while publication.

That's it - a small selection of very short, loose corners? It not exactly got me drooling.

Those grades are way off. Altai Kok if you ask me.

Fly across the world, drive circa 12 hours on the motorway, take a 4 hour 4x4 drive, 10km walk in. Climb three routes which I wouldn't bother doing if they were at my local roadside?

No thanks!

Ha Ha - like a kipper!

Really? Seems pretty naff really. Can't figure out why it's funny.

My apologies. I'd assumed that it was genuine due to the telltale errors in the text. Had they been absent I'd have noticed something was afoot.

My PC has got the latest version of Fwll Anti-Virus (1.04) software and wouldn't download the topo.
Can you send it to me by post??

For anyone wondering, we actually did go there and climb those routes last summer. Fortunately, that wasn't the only reason we went given the fact they are as unimpressive as they look and the approach really is that long!

We'd gone to the Altai to go mountaineering, but we spotted a bit of fairly solid rock a few minutes from our basecamp so went and had a little climb on a rest day. One of the team put the Rockfax-style topo together as a bit of a joke when we got back, but the guys at Rockfax thought he'd done a good enough job to pass it off as a real sample page.

If anyone's interested, what we got up to for the rest of the few weeks is up on our website: www.thealtai.co.uk
