Summary

50+ limestone routes. Community members are working to fix the many missing 1st/2nd bolts and missing anchors. For now, bring a clip stick and don't take bolts/anchors for granted!

Description

(The Bear Cave?) Has a good range of grades with some hard limestone routes up to (8b+). The crag has an upper tier and a lower tier.

Approach

Park at the olive press 32.386667, 35.711265 and walk 5-10 mins to access the top of cliff for the upper tier. Can either scramble down west to the west min cave sector, or east to the baby cave sector (which is less steep). The lower tier (the big CAVE and Barabeer wall) is accessed by scrambling down from the west mini cave or scrambling up from the road at the valley floor.

Ethic inherited from Jordan
