The area is access sensitive!

🚗 By car:
To access the climbing, you will need to drive through much of Nablus with its confusing, winding streets. As such, it is best to put the GPS coordinates into your navigation application and follow the directions. As a point of orientation and half-way mark, the point from which you will have to leave the main road dissecting Nablus from East to West in order to drive up the hill is the following: 32.215388, 35.273691

Park on the side of the road, just beneath the cliff. You can either directly scramble up the steep slope to the crag or walk through the parking space under the building directly in front of the rock. After you pass the parking, you will find some rather improvised stairs which pass by the neighboring houses. Walk up these stairs and then walk left towards the crag.

🚌 By public transport:
From Ramallah: Take a service to Nablus. From the service station in Nablus or from the historic Old City, it is only a 15-minute walk up to the cliff. From the station, if you walk directly uphill to the north you will have the cliff in view for most of the way. Although relatively close to the center, be mindful of the fact that the walk from downtown to the climbing area requires a couple hundred meters of elevation gain.

Political situation:
The cliff is in the declared Area A (According to the Oslo Accords in 1994) and thereby under the authority of the PA. However, just a bit up the hill, situated on the peak of the mountain is one of the most important Israeli intelligence surveillance stations. Thus, make sure not to walk around the cliff or hike up the mountain. Under no circumstances should you go close to the military base; that would be dangerous and ill-advised. Also, do not stay at the cliff past dark as military patrols are known to pass by during the night. Nonetheless, we highly recommend staying to watch the sun set over the city to the sound of calming evening prayers – a truly spectacular sight!
