Anybody ever climbed there before? Have any connections or friends there? Tips on taking gear internationally? A friend of mine brought up the idea of going and a few days later I bought a plane ticket (unfortunately after I bought my ticket I found out my friend may not be able to make it afterall so it may end up being a solo adventure). Of course I'm going to do a lot of sight seeing in the holy land, but a huge reason to go is to climb; I mean come on, how awesome does that sound. I looked on the Israel page and saw that there's a whopping 3 routes listed so I'm not expecting much, but I'm kinda going in blind and am looking for any tips or help that I can get. Thanks guys and gals!

Hey, did you end up going? I will be in Israel on October 19 until ?. I would be down to climb. And if you brought trad gear we should definitely go get on some big stuf in wadi rum Jordan. I only have a harness and shoes, no rope draws cams etc. well let me know if you want to climb!

Hey there,

I'm in Egypt climbing right now and plan to be for at least the rest of this month, if you're interested in coming down to the Sinai, or meeting up in Jordan or somewhere in Israel let me know.

Hey I am definitely interested. I just sent you a private message.
