15th International Victory Climbing of Mount Ağrı Turkey 2014

Location: Ararat, Turkey

27 - 31 August 2014

UIAA member federations are invited to participate in the 15th International Victory Climbing of Mount Ağrı organized by the Turkish Mountaineering Federation.

Mount Ağrı is situated at an altitude of 5165m is a snow-capped, dormant volcanic cone with two peaks: Greater Ağrı (Ararat) (the highest peak in Turkey, and the entire Armenian plateau with an elevation of 5,137 m or 16,854 ft.) and Lesser Ağrı (Ararat) (with an elevation of 3,896 m or 12,782 ft.).

The Ararat massif is about 40 km (25 mi) in diameter. The Iran-Turkey boundary skirts east of Lesser Ararat, the lower peak of the Ararat massif. It was in this area that, by the Tehran Convention of 1932, a border change was made in Turkey's favors, allowing it to occupy the eastern flank of Lesser Ararat.
