Aiguilles Marbrées traverse
Aiguilles Marbrées traverse, summer 2023

I went to the mountains as a schoolboy and I haven't been able to see myself without them since. I went on my first hikes with my father and his friends. Aragats was my first ascent. It is a 4,095 meters high mountain in Armenia.

I joined the mountain hiking club in Yerevan in 1993. I went hiking, dragged heavy rucksacks, but never climbed the peaks around me. I realised that something was wrong and joined the alpine section of the Bauman Moscow State Technical University. I got the hang of it quickly. I started to do what I liked: climbing peaks. Things didn't work out with instructors, I learned mostly from my mistakes. Then I ended up at the MAI alpine club.

In 2018 I moved to France and decided to establish myself as a mountain guide and enrolled in the Kyrgyz Guide School. After 3 years he graduated, received a diploma and an international licence.

More than 10 years' experience of climbing and travelling as a guide. Expeditions to different parts of the world. In addition to climbing and trekking, I also do rock climbing, ice climbing, trekking, cycling, running and even triathlons.
