A nice intermediate-advanced North facing crag, you will enjoy climbing in the shade during the hot lebanese summer.

How to get there

On the road taking you from Batroun to Tannourine, and arriving in Beit Chlela, you will see a sign on your right of a maronite church with a white cross. Take the off road going up until you get to a parking spot. Make sure you park well so there is enough space for other cars. Follow the path from the parking road on foot for about 30m, you then take the steep path on your left and go up until you see the big white cross. At that point you can see the crag and follow a small path going up to the right. Total ascent time is 10 to 15 min.
