Meet Graf, the Mountain Climbing Cat


Walking a cat is an unusual occurrence by itself, but one Russian adventurer name Andrei Ostanin takes walking his cat to an entirely new level. Andrei is from the Russian town of Nizhny Tagil, which is in the heart of Siberia. He is passionate about hiking through remote, wild areas of Siberia and often takes his cat with him on his adventures. How did this unusual situation come about? Well, it all started when no one would watch Andrei's cat. The cat, whose name is Graf, which means Duke in Russian, has managed to see quite a bit more of the world than the average feline. Andrei takes him almost everywhere, including to the top of mountains. On Wednesday the intrepid pair reached Lake Baikal in the Irkutsk Region where Ostanin plans to spend a few days cycling over the frozen ice to Olkhon Island. Their biggest adventure took place in October 2016, when the pair climbed Mount Elbrus, which stands at 18,510 feet, making it the highest peak in Russia and Europe. Unfortunately, a storm prevented them from making it to the top, but they did enjoy a two week holiday in Crimea afterwards. You can keep up with Graf's adventures on Instagram by following his page @graf-andreevich.

  • The "daily" task of guiding climbers to the top of Aconcagua

    Buenos Aires, Oct 29 (EFE) .- Hiking on the Aconcagua, the highest peak in America and the southern hemisphere, is a goal coveted by adventurers from all over the world and the usual activity of local mountain guides. STATEMENTS BY NILS FONTENLA, MOUNTAIN GUIDE AND MENDOZA DELEGATE OF THE ARGENTINE ASSOCIATION OF MOUNTAIN GUIDES:"On the Aconcagua, the normal access route is on the west or north-west side, it is the easiest with a softer slope. Why so many days? The idea is that our body has to adapt to the altitude, if we wanted to climb everything at once, like Mendoza's 700 meters to the summit of Aconcagua, in a few hours we would have difficulties which could worsen and we could die."
