Mount Ararat is the tallest peak in Turkey. (5137m.) This snow-capped, dormant volcanic cone is located in the Iğdır Province, near the northeast corner of Turkey, 16 km (10 mi) west of the Iranian and 32 km (20 mi) south of the Armenian border.


Noah's Mountain
by Wayne Blank
"But God remembered Noah and all the beasts and all the cattle that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind blow over the earth, and the waters subsided; the fountains of the deep and the windows of the heavens were closed, the rain from the heavens was restrained, and the waters receded from the earth continually. At the end of a hundred and fifty days the waters had abated; and in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, the ark came to rest upon the mountains of Ararat." (Genesis 8:1-4 RSV) (see The Flood and How Big Was Noah's Ark?)

The mountains of Ararat are located between the Black and Caspian Seas in southern Armenia. Although "Mount Ararat" has become popularly used for where Noah's ark came to rest, as The Bible account states, Ararat was actually a mountain range. Two peaks, about 7 miles / 11 kilometers apart, have been identified as the most likely location of the ark's resting place. The one is 14,300 feet and the other 10,300 feet above the adjacent Araxes plain. The higher of the two has a snow-covered peak year round, and was known to the ancient Persians (who were neither Jews nor Christians - see Ancient Empires - Persia) as "Noah's mountain."

Kaçkar Dağı, with an elevation of 3931 meters, is the highest peak in the chain Kaçkar Dağları. The mountain may be climbed by the northeast ridge route beginning from the village Yukarı Kavrun.


(Turkish: Erciyes Dağı) is a massive stratovolcano located 25 km south of Kayseri, Turkey. Erciyes is the highest mountain in central Anatolia (3,916 metres). The volcano is heavily eroded, but may have erupted as recently as 253 BC, as may be depicted on Roman era coins. Strabo wrote that in his time the summit was never free from snow and that those few who ascended it could see both the Black Sea and the Mediterranean.

We are a search and rescue team called AKUT (Turkey), and before we became members of this association, (years ago) we had our own group called 9+ and we had then only formed the group for people who wanted to go climbing together... then things went in a different way and we became rescuers, but still in the name of the good old days we call ourselves 9+ Team and we still go hiking, rock climbing,canyoning etc together, and we invite people who would like to join.. so it is... and in that group on facebook, we inform people about when and where we are going next...

27cragsclimbervoice8a and many others are amazing sites, but sometimes, expecially if you worked a lot to envision, bolt, clean routes or boulders, you want to monetize a little your efforts.

9b can help you in this aim.


As you can see here, in 9b there are many " topo groups ".


You can add a discussion in every "topo group".

In your discussion you can edit and publish your own climbing topoguide, as a "paywall", a "destination page", requiring climbers their payment by credit card or paypal to access and read, even on SMARTPHONES (iphones, android phones, ...)


After having paid, climbers can see, save and print your climbing topoguide.


In this discussion you can add:


1) PHOTOS regarding one specific SECTOR (of routes or bouldering, dws lines)


a) "PHOTO topo":

It's very easy to edit a photo topo:

- upload a photo of a rock in a topo group discussion

- drawn the lines

- write names and grades (an example…
