Oldest Recorded Crag in History

The site of perhaps the oldest recorded crag and free-solo ascent in human history, ~3000 years ago. The north and south cliffs were named Bozez and Seneh.

"Between the passes by which Jonathan sought to cross over to the Philistines’ garrison, there was a sharp crag on the one side and a sharp crag on the other side, and the name of the one was Bozez, and the name of the other Seneh. The one crag rose on the north opposite Michmash, and the other on the south opposite Geba....Then Jonathan said to the young man who was carrying his armor, “Come and let us cross over...Then Jonathan climbed up on his hands and feet, with his armor bearer behind him..." 1 Sam. 14

Access is difficult and the approach is about 45 minutes each way on foot. Don't try to find it on your own. Feb 23, 2017
