Climbing In "Tbilisi Botanical Garden"

Georgian climbers of all decades have been climbing at the Botanical Garden – one of the best places to go rock climbing in Tbilisi.

Best time to climb

You can climb in the Botanical Garden throughout the whole year, whereas it might get a bit too hot in summer. If you go in the summertime anyway, the best time is in the morning from 9-11. A.M. or in the evening from 7-10 P.M.

How to get there

From Freedom Square, you can catch the bus no. 90 or alternatively take a taxi for 2-3 Lari. In either case, you should drop off at the Institute of Botany (if you don’t know the exact spot, don’t hesitate to ask the driver). From there, you just follow down the river until you reach the climbing rocks.

What you need

If you want to climb sport style, you will need a 60 m rope and 8 quickdraws. A helmet is not necessary but recommended if other climbers are on the wall simultaneously. If you stick to top rope, one 60 m rope is sufficient.

Route

Apart from the top rope routes, route no. 9, 10, 13, 14, 15 and 22 are bolted. No. 1 and 2 are projects yet to be bolted. The bouldering routes are not marked on the rocks, but are easily recognizable and can be found on the photos here.

You also have the option to climb 80 m traverse through all the rock face at the Botanical Garden.
