My transition from martial arts to climbing happened by chance when I was recruited to climb Mount Damavand, Iran’s highest peak (5,610m). Despite a relatively late start at 23, I ignited a fire during that expedition, one that steadily transformed into a fulfilling career in climbing. So far, I have opened more than 100 sport, trad and bouldering routes across Armenia, Georgia, India, Turkey, Oman, UAE, Italy, and of course Iran. When I’m not travelling to climb new rock, the other driving force in my life is coaching. I love helping people meet their goals!
