      Bisotun
      The 4th Festival of Big wall Climbing Iran – Kermanshah
      20th to 27th October 2018
       
       
       
      Bisotunn is a vast and complex 1,200m high limestone wall in western Iran's Zagros Range. It is variously reported as up to eight kilometers in width. Currently there are approximately 100 routes, leaving plenty of space for additions. The rock is outstanding - generally sound, well featured and highly abrasive, the latter almost uncomfortably so.
      The first International Festival at Bisotun took place in 2010 and was well attended and foreign participants were French (there is a long tradition of climbing here by the Groupe de Haute Montagne), but Australia, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, Sweden and Switzerland were represented.
       
      Foreign participants, often in the company of local climbers, enjoyed excellent climbing in relaxed company. Most Iranian climbers are middle class and well-educated.In the 2010 festival Nineteen year old Sebastien Bouin from France and 25 year old Hassan Javadian (a former Iranian climbing champion) put up a five-pitch bolted line with a crux of 5.14b. 
       
      Anthony Hall and Julie Heller, an Australian couple on their honeymoon, climbed a new 250m route with Iranians Ehsan Mirtaghi and Shokouh Pariai.Honeymoon was rated 5.11a/b.
       
      This year the I.R.Iran Mountaineering & Sport Climbing Federation intended to hold the 4th Festival of Big Wall Climbing in “BISTOUN” in cooperating with UIAA, FFCAM, GHM and Atour Adventure Group in Kermanshah.
