We have the same passion for mountains, sports and Kyrgyzstan
  • Eduard Kubatov

    Was elected a President of the Federation in February 2022. He is the Winner of the Golden Order, the highest sports award of the Kyrgyz Republic and the National Olympic Committee.

    My long research and business activities have been closely connected with the greatest mountain ranges of Asia: Ala-Too (Tien Shan), Pamir, Kokhi-Safed, Hindu Kush and North American Cordilleras. All this laid the foundation for the emergence of sports passion in the field of mountaineering and skiing. My sporting interests included climbing the highest peaks in America, Europe, Africa, the Caucasus, Central Asia, Tibet and the Himalayas.

    As a member of international global climbing programs: "Snow Leopard", "7 Summits", "Q14" (Crown of the Earth, climbing all 14 eight-thousanders of the world), the first two of which are at the completion stage, I have gained a lot of mountaineering and management experience, necessary for the development of all types of mountain sports Federation.

    Successful ascents to the iconic peaks of the world, Everest and Manaslu, and the subsequent wide public attention formed the foundation of popularizing our mountaineering not only in Kyrgyzstan, but throughout the world.

  • Marina Galtsova
    The Vice President of Sport Climbing
    I developed an interest in mountains and extreme sports during my membership in a school club "Young Tourists". They went on hikes with classmates, participated in tourism activities, and visited historical monuments in Kyrgyzstan. School tourism has grown into mountaineering and sport climbing.

    Sport climbing became a matter of life. I have been training sport athletes and developing Kyrgyzstan mountaineering since 1991. I deal with paperwork on climbing, construction of climbing walls, management of competitions and seminars for coaches and trainers.

    I enjoy drawing, skating and skiing at my spare time. I'm a Candidate master of Sports of the USSR in rock climbing, senior coach in rock climbing of Kyrgyzstan.
  • Andrei Erokhin
    Vice-captain of the National mountaineering team of the Kyrgyz Republic
    I was a troublemaker since my early years. Constantly climbing all the attics and basements in the district, had to ran away from daycare several times, and could not sit still in one place for a long time. At the age of 19, I came to sport climbing club headed by Galtsova M.B.

    When I first went on hiking I had expected the romance of camping, but instead I had to carry a 35kg bagpack for 20 km a day. But regardless, I enjoed looking at the majestic Tien Shan mountains. Having reached the base camp "South Enilchek" I first saw the peaks of Pobeda and Khan-Tengri. The climbers descending from these peaks looked as if they had returned from the battlefield, emacipated and excausted, but joy in their eyes. Listening to their stories in the evenings, I was filled up with the spirit of mountaineering.

    Sport titles: Candidate Master of Sports in rock climbing and mountaneering, "Snow Leopard", champion of the World Cup in mountaineering 2020, 5th place in the World Mountaineering Championship 2016, International Mountain Guide IFMGA, mountaineering instructor of the 3rd category. More than 60 ascents of the 4th-6th category of difficulty, 4 first ascents, one oxygen-free ascent at 8000 meters.
