Site features

This site features both very short climbs and well short climbs but is an excellent place for camping and climbing. The land is private however and is owned by Mr. Tony who runs a restaurant and camping site at that location. He is a very nice gentleman who welcomes all climbers. On weekends it is preferable not to park infront of the restaurant as this place is reserved for the customers. His number is +961 03 256 709 for camping and or food arrangements.

How to get there

Latitude: 33°59'47.58"N
Longitude: 35°48'30.08"E

Take the road up to Faraya, get past Faraya and head for Faqra's Roman ruins. Once you get there drive 10 meters past the entrance of the roman castle and take the road to your right (only open road). This will lead you straight to Chez Toni which is the start of the climbs there.

For this site, I haven't got the chance to climb and grade all of them, the first routes 1 through 13 are generally easy anywhere between 4 and 5.
