This is a very good acclimatization climb just outside the city. Trail is a bit difficult to find though :-)

Route Climbed: South face via Comachal by lift Date Climbed: 28 January 2005  Sucess!

Velenjak - Lift - Ski resort 3740m - 45min hike - Summit.

perfect sunshine, -16C on summit, north-west wild wind on the crest, the snow cover was solid in crazy shapes done by the winds.

Almost all Elborz range was visible from the summit in the thin air like never before, you could count the peaks,

less than 30mins clouds covered the sky and covered Alamkouh 4850m.

Shame, Tehran not visible at all, covered by a thick layer of toxics.

The easy way to the summit. Took the lift to the top of it at 3740 m. From there it was a half hour pleasant hike with 224 m of vertical. Tons of snow on the northern slopes. NorthernTehran barely visible in the haze/smog.
