Alam kooh in Iran

by Hamid » Mon Apr 04, 2016 6:07 am

Alam kooh summit ( 4851m ) is the second highest mountain in Iran and obviously the most technical mountain . The north face and west face of the summit consist of granite technical routes and walls which accept many experienced climbers each year ! The Glaciers and vertical rock change it to the most challenging mountain from north and west face. By the way its possible to reach the summit via an easy nice route ! Here are some information that I prepared about the mountain .
Mountain Location : Northern of Iran in Takht-E-Soleiman massif , Closest city is Kelardasht
Best season to climb : May to September, but the best months are July and August .
Easiest route : German Flank : A technical rocky ridge to the summit ,PD in French grading which goes to the summit
Hardest route : Polish 48 : up to 7c in the hardest pitch , One of the most attractive and challenging route on the wall .
Time to reach to the Basecamp ( 4000m ) : 1 and hald day with acclimitization
Alamkouh means a straight flag mountain which is showing its unique shape .

The first route was developed by two climbers , Amir Alaei and Harry roust on 1964 which they didn't reach the summit completely . Then in 1966 , 4 climbers from French Alpine Club did the first route on 25 days of hard job !

In 1969 , The Polish Climbers made the first ascent of the Polish 48 which they climbed it aided ! In the recent years the route climbed free . 4 years later the Polish made another first ascent on the wall which is one of the stunning aid climbing routes on the wall .
