We should call the cleaner.

Average Rating = 3.67/5 We should call the cleaner.

The route (Death Becomes Her) was a few weeks old, so it still needed some cleaning. Igor has done most of it on his first ascend by braking some of the unstable holds. It was scary...

It's not the hardest clip...

Average Rating = 4.00/5 It's not the hardest clip...

Igor Pergamenchik fighting with the rope drag. Actually, he has passed the crux already and now he is just pumped as hell. Nothing can stop our Svetlii Geroi:) ha-ha-ha

Still one short for redpoint:(

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Still one short for redpoint:(

Super Fuel showed me what's the difference between a route graded upon it's overall difficulty and a route graded upon a single move.

Stop wasting your talent!!!!!!!!!

Average Rating = 3.33/5 Stop wasting your talent!!!!!!!!!

It pisses me off to see him do that! He has not trained for few months, he has crashed his knee few weeks ago and still manages to do harder routes. Igor's first 7a, called Hamavet Nae La (The Death Becomes Her). "Fragment" don't waste your time in studying, man:)

I need some super fuel...

Average Rating = 3.00/5 I need some super fuel...

Once it was the only overhanging route in Gitta. Some say it is 7b. We can argue on that. Try it! It's worth it.

My first try to push the limit

Average Rating = 3.00/5 My first try to push the limit

This was my first attempt to try something harder than 6c. I love this route. It's hard but very technical. Nice balance on small crimps and slopes. It will become a classic, I'm sure of it. Excellent job you guys (Oded & Tsvika) on setting these routes.

Give me a brake!?

Average Rating = 2.50/5 Give me a brake!?

Even the easiest routes got me pump like an OB on a first day of a period. I hated this not perticulary high limestone wall. I hope the new bolted routes are better.

The ballerina from Belarus

Average Rating = 2.50/5 The ballerina from Belarus

My friend and climbing partner Igor, on his way for a very scary clip. There are no more than three moves of 6c, but that's enough to fill you with adrenalin.

Ice skating on limestone...

Average Rating = 2.67/5 Ice skating on limestone...

That was my first and last time at Gai Ben Hinom crag. It is one of the oldest crags and is so polished that I couldn't place my feet on anything but wide ledges and huge pockets. I've heard that the old bolts were replace lately by the Israel Alpine Club, but I still can't forget the climb there on a single bolt, and believe me it's not a mixed climb.

Clear your mind and commit

Average Rating = 2.00/5 Clear your mind and commit

The slippery wall of the cave and lack of obvious footholds made this 6c+ route to me pretty painful. Anyway the overhang and the exit through the window make it one of the most interesting routes I have ever climbed.

Let your forearms explode

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Let your forearms explode

I managed to clip this second quickdraw. The third one was a problem though. I couldn't stabilize my feet and reach out through the window for a much better hold.

Average Rating = 3.00/5 having a good day :)

Shilat (route #15 at the IAC guide), a nice 6b+, a slopy handhold came as a surprise and left me hanging in mid air strugling to bring my feet back (unfortunately my partner was too shocked to take that picture), a great climb a great day great photos enjoy :)

You take my breath away...

Average Rating = 2.50/5 You take my breath away...

An interesting problem that starts with a crack then traverse to the right and then goes for a shaky balance on a slopy handhold. Libi made me do this move about 10 times until I got it right. the rouet is located to the right of "avot avotenu" around the corner of the 5.8 crack on the face.

Give me jugs to rest on...

Average Rating = 2.00/5 Give me jugs to rest on...

I was so glad that I had a top rope for this problem... Finding where to place your feet on this smooth quarry wall was the hardest thing...After you get the jug everything seems to be over, thank God.
