Site features

This site was put up by John Redwine and Marcin Pius.

All routes are equipped with glue in bolts and rap anchors. "Four to go" has rap in the middle of the route for those for those who don't have a 70m rope (so it can be climbed and rappelled in two pitches on 50m rope). There is usually a bamboo stick near the base of the cliff for pre-clipping but you will need some finger tape or duct tape to make the system work.

How to get there

Latitude: 33°50'21.56"N
Longitude: 35°35'1.60"E

Take the road from Mkalles
Round about to Mansouriyeh and Beit Mery. Around Mansouriyeh watch for left turn singed Bell View Hospital (or clinic) - it is a messy intersection with kind of roundabout. After you take this turn follow the road downhill until you reach the hand side of the forking road (it will become broader as they are working on kilometre or so and take first possible right this road down (narrow bitumen road) till hospital. Just as you pass the building take left be narrow bitumen road, that might soon it at the moment). Follow this one for a turn (180 degrees turn). Then follow the end of steep descent finished with a right curve. Here there will be kind of cross road. Left will be a road with chain across it (don't take it), right will be a dirt road going down to olive orchard (don't take it either) and straight-ish will go a narrow road (end of bitumen) - take that one. Follow it (narrow and bumpy) till its end. The cliff is at the end of it (there is Kahraba Lubnan building there).
