Description

Many nice routes in the 6th and 7th grade. Cool and shady in the summer.

Access issues inherited from Ein Farah

Ein Farah/Ein Prat is part of an National Park called Wadi Qelt within Area C (Israel controlled) of Palestine's West Bank. You can climb from sunrise to sunset within the permitted zone. The quickest access is through the National Park where an entrance fee is requested. You can also chose the longer hike in without entering the National Park, but in that case you have to limit your climbing to the Southern Cliff. Be ware that you are within the military occupied West Bank and that you will have to pass armed checkpoints, soldiers and security forces depending on from where you approach.

Ethic inherited from Ein Farah

Ein Farah is located within an Israeli National Park. Climbing is only allowed within the area indicated by signs. Please be friendly to park rangers and take your trash home.

Grade Route

The first route after the big cave. After the pumpy start take a rest in the smelly hyrax cave. Then continue with more delicate moves to the top.

Set 2011

Very nice juggy and overhanging line. One of the best at this grade in the country.

Set 2009

Another nice line. Great length if combined with the second pitch. Take a long rope (70m)!

Set 2008

Links the start of Boarder Run with the top of Shades of Beauty, to avoid the harder section of either route.

Set 2006

Interesting moves around the overhang (careful at the third clip), then easier.

Set 2006

Set 2007

Bouldery.

Short warm-up route to the left of the "cave".

Set 2007

Starts as Bomba, but then to the right of the "cave".

Set 2007

Better than it looks. Some nice physical moves.

Set 2006

Long warm-up with hardish section in the beginning.

Set 2006

Trad line along the obvious crack. Use anchor of the route on the left.

Worth the money - sustained. Directly to the right of the trad crack.

Set 2006

Same start as Yonathan Shapira, clip its first two (or three) bolts, then carefully traverse to the left, before going straight up the face.

Set 2006

Reachy start to delicate moves on small holds up the black stripe. Named after a former Israeli Air Force Pilot, now a peace activist.

Set 2007

8a for some.

Physical start. Further up, when holds are disappearing, either do the evasive manoeuver to the right before coming back in line for the little overhang. Or alternatively continue straight up to the station (a little harder).

Set 2009

Hard stuff. Sometimes quoted as 8a.

Set 2010

Variety of moves on slippery holds. Crux comes after the stalactite. Alternative finish to the station of the route on the left - no addtional bolts, harder.

Set 1998

FFA: 2006

Short A0 - assisted climb to get to the anchor for the 5 routes to the right of Mixta Grill. Clip in the bolts and use the rope to pull yourself up. This and all the routes on top are rarely climbed.

From the A0 station, traverse left, choose your clips wisely, and follow the thorny bushes far up through the main crack/chimney. Station comes after the little overhang.

From the A0 station, almost straight up. Easy start, hard at the overhang. 6a+ in the guidebook, but much harder at the crux (6c+?)!

From the A0 station, traverse to the right and then go straight up before the little bush. Very nice moves, but long distances between the bolts, give this a bit of a multipitch feel.

From the A0 anchor traverse far right, past Rotor and take the next line straight up. Nice, but a bit psycho since bolts are well spaced out.

Links Divergence with the top of Islands In The Stream. Shares the first three bolts with Divergence, links up to the intermediate station of Islands in the Stream and continues up two more bolts to the higher station.

Set 2007

Strong right traversing line with crux at the little "roof". Somewhat slippery and hard for the grade.

Set 2007

Chimney starting on ledge above. Use "Kal Kar" as first pitch, then carefully walk right to get to the start of this route.
