Rock Climbing Photos : Alpine : From Gutsvensera

From Gutsvensera

From Gutsvensera

The photo is taken just near the second mountain hut-Gutsvensera. The south face(classical route,relatively the simplest one) of Damavand is visible. The altitude of the hut is around 3000 m(~9000ft). In my opinion Damavand is a very good start to high altitude climbing. It was my first over-5000m climb, but I couldn't finish the route because of abdominal sickness:). I got cold due to my 4 year-old Garmont leather shoes and I had to shit every 10 minutes during the climb above 5000 meters and it was really tough, finally I decided to go down. The very first thing that I learned from this mountain was the importance of outer wear...(March 2000)
