Description

Ein Prat is one of the top climbing areas in the country. There are dozens of great climbs ranging from moderate to very difficult, but as with most of the outdoor climbing in Israel, it isn't trivial. The rock here is exclusively limestone, with the large majority of climbs bolted face climbs. There are a few trad climbs available however. The canyon of Ein Prat allows for a mix of sun and shade, and if you go midweek, there will be almost no crowds. Its close proximity to Jerusalem allows for larger numbers of people on the weekend, but they are probably not climbers. The scenery is stunning - the river is one of the prettiest places around the Jerusalem area. Climbers obviously aren't the only ones who think so, as there is an active monastery in the middle of the reserve. There are a couple of multi-pitch routes, but most are single pitch. A 60m rope should be sufficient.

Getting There

From Jerusalem, drive towards Pisgat Ze'ev, and drive on Aluf Uzi Narkis road. Turn right at the traffic lights. Continue past the West Bank IDF checkpoint, and follow signs for Anatot (Alamon). From the security checkpoint at the settlement, follow the signs for Ein Prat until you get to the park entrance. Currently, the fee is 27 NIS per person. Drive down the curvy road to the parking lot. If you don't have a car, take the Jerusalem light rail to Pisgat Ze'ev Center, and grab a taxi (55-60 NIS on the meter, but you might be able to get it lower). Make sure you have the driver's number so you can get back when the reserve closes
