Climbing locations near Almaty
The rock climbing season in Kazakhstan runs from March to November. During the summer, it's best to stay in the mountains, at Tuyuk-Su or Butakovskiy waterfall, as it's too hot at lower altitudes. In the spring and autumn, it's better to climb in Tamgaly Tas.

Tamgaly Tas
Tamgaly Tas, located 120km north of Almaty on the right bank of the Ili River (it's a steppe area), is distinct from the famous petroglyph site "Tamgaly" (or Tanbaly). With its towering rock walls overlooking the Ili River, Tamgaly Tas has been a magnet for rock climbers since the 1970s. Here you can find about 200 routes from 5a to 8a grades.
There are some trad routes and multipitches as well. The place offers a mix of climbing styles, from smooth slabs and vertical faces to a little bit crack climbs.
