Team: The North Face | Re:white out | Tengu`s
I started setting when I was 16 y.o. My coach gave me an opportunity to set in his small climbing gym.
From that time I fell in love with route setting. A few years later I set my first commercial and then official competition.
- Now I have more than 10 years of experience in setting
- Head setter of climbing gym for more than 5 years
- Head Setter at commercial and International competitions
- Built 5 gyms in Moscow​
I love solving puzzles while setting. I'm trying to create something new every time. Often I take an inspiration from rocks. Nature has already set a lot of cool stuff.
I also want to help to connect owners of climbing gyms with route setters to improve their work.

The idea of setting was to create easy problems in competition style.

First steps in setting at local gym
In a few years I fell in love in climbing and spent a lot of time in the gym. My coach found me a part-time job - setting. Since that time I could climb for free and also had found motivation for participating in competitions to look for new ideas from competition boulders

- From 2013 till 2015
Head setter of RockZona climbing gym
After 3 years of setting, local gym gave me a full-time job - head setter. It was my first serious setting job. After this I started to set a lot of local and Moscow competitions.

- From 2016 till now - Climbing coach
In Moscow we don’t have a lot of climbing gyms, so it's pretty hard to have one job. A lot of climbers have a main job, e.g. setter and a second one - coaching. After finishing Moscow Aviation Institute I stared working as a Coach.

- From 2017 till 2020 - Head setter at BigWall Climbing Gym
In 2016 the first BigWall was closed due to city reconstruction works, we spent one year to find a new better place for climbing center. I designed and built 3 new BigWall gyms in 2017.

- From 2020 till Now
Owner of - a climbing school in Russia
In Russia we have a lot of rocks, from south to north. I have always wanted to show these places to all climbers. And in 2020 I founded a climbing school. Me and my coaches are training climbers in Moscow and organising training camps on rocks around Russia and the world.
Also I have started to organise workshops for climbers. The idea is simple: I set 5-7 problems in the same style, but different grades. Climbers can try from the easiest grades to the hardest. It's great for understanding moves and to improve technical skills.
