New! Hiking Trails on the Cliff of the Patriarchs

The cliff on the Path of the Patriarchs in Gush Etzion is located between Elazar and Neve Daniel. The cliff opened for climbers in July of 2020, with the support of the Israel Climber’s Association, and funded by the Gush Etzion Tourism Council.

A number of climbing routes have been erected on the cliff by Yehoshua Roth, Shimon Ben-Zaken, and additional members. Some of the routes had various boulder problems and have since been relisted, many more climbing routes having additionally been created. Today, there stand 46 prominent climbing routes all along the cliff.
