Route Climbed: From upper parking lot Date Climbed: June 16, 2004
As a teenager, I skied here a lot between 1978 and 1983 when I left Iran. I forced my parents to bring me to Dizin a couple of times in summer just to see what it looked like without the snow but I never hiked the short distance from the top of the lift to the summit of Seechal.
The hike from the upper parking lot to the summit of Seechal was absolutely gorgeous. Green grass, flowers and patches of snow covered the slopes. I was so glad to see the north face of Mt. Tochal from the summit.
