About Varzob:

Highway accessible river valley with some established and drilled routes.
Nearest town or city: Varzob
Directions: Take the highway north out of the North (Varzob) Market in Dushanbe. You can ride the 1 or 3 metro bus to the market and get on a 24 mini bus or a Tangem (chinese minivan) and make your way up the road. There are top jauns along the highway where rock climbing is conveniently nestled behind. Some areas are up valleys off of marker 18 or 19.
Latitude, Longitude: 38.76158, 68.81836
Access Issues: There are no laws forbidding it but you are often on 'private property' and should be kind and courteous to anyone who approaches you. If they ask you to leave, do so without arguing. It is easier to go and come back later than to pay the bribe to get out of some crooked cops lock down.
Camping: Free
When to Climb: Autumn Summer
Quantity of Climbs: Month
