Rockclimbing in Israel. Basic Rockclimbing program and sightseeing.

I can bet that when referring to Israel as a tourist destination, you will hardly have any association with rockclimbing! Anything come to mind: fat bodies smeared with mud in the Dead Sea, the pilgrims to the Christian shrines, whispering prayers Jewish orthodox, ruins of ancient times and ultra modern buildings of Tel Aviv, anything but not cliff hangers. However, this error is due to a very standard, one-sided (and thick-minded), primitive knowledge about Israel. Meanwhile, this young and dynamically developing country, with all the variety of terrain, could not stay far from the modern currents and not to give birth to such a universal phenomenon, as rockclimbing. Israel has provided two main prerequisites for the development of a new and trendy sport: active and healthy generation of young people have found a new and exciting form of sports entertainment, and on the other hand - rock formations, which are abound in the north and the south of Israel, were found suitable for the equipment of the rockclimbing routes of all the levels. In general, it started! For 10-12 years, the Israeli rockclimbing community grew into a strong independent organization called ILCC (Israel Climbers Club), able to develop, contact with government, and to expand and develop a climbing infrastructure in Israel. Currently, Israel has 15 major climbing areas in which there are more than 500 climbing routes of different difficulty levels.

It's not much, but given the size of the country (Israel in length does not exceed 400 km) and diverse (and sometimes - unique) nature of the rocks, we can say that today, Israel is of interest not only to local enthusiasts, but also for the international climbing community.
Israel is interesting for rockclimbing mostly during the winter months, from November to April, as for climbing in the hot season one should be very heat-resistant, in order to train outside in the burning desert sun. However, is it nearly the same season for rockclimbing in many parts of Europe. All over Israel, in addition to numerous equipped climbing areas, there is a well-developed network of indoor climbing walls and bouldering gyms, which allows to the Israeli climbers not to interrupt their training in bad weather or in the hot summer months.

Visiting Israel for the reason of rockclimbing can be combined perfectly with going to the most interesting historical sites that are so numerous in this country - the main and most developed rockclimbing sectors of Israel are located close to Jerusalem – which is probably the most popular tourist center in Israel.

We invite everybody interested in rockclimbing to participate in our climbing program in Israel. Your rockclimbing level and experience do not matter: we orient this program for beginners, but also if you are an experienced climber, you also easily can find something to do - in the sectors in which we organize our rockclimbing workout, you can find any routes from the most basics (5), to the routes which are more than serious (7b, 8c).

This 8-day rockclimbing program in Israel was developed for people, who don't have previous rockclimbing experience, and who want to get introduced with the classic rockclimbing in its natural form - on the real rocks. But participation in this program will be interesting not only to the beginners in rockclimbing! In the climbing locations of Israel where we organize our rockclimbing trainings, the routes can be found in the range from grad V - the basics, to the most interesting and complicated rockclimbing challenges of 7b-8c!

Planning the trip, we take as basis our standard short rockclimbing 8 days variant which allows us to combine climbing with sightseeing and recreations. We do not limit ourselves to just climbing rocks - for us it is more than sport - it is our way of life - active, bright and full of adventures! This 8 days Israel Rockclimbing program is developed for people, who has small rock climbing experience or has none at all and who would like to try what is the rockclimbing. For participation in this program we recommend to take a brief AlexClimb Course of indoor rockclimbing in Moscow to get the basic climbing skills before the taking your part in your rockclimbing program in Israel.

The First Principle of MCS AlexClimb
The first rule, by which we are guided in developing of the program - it is Safety. Professional Guides lead the group, only the high quality certificated equipment is used. All that guarantees the highest possible level of your Safety, and it is the most important part of our work.

Our Principles

AlexClimb Rule #1 - Safety First

From the very beginning of our activity, here nearly 16 years, the first Principle of work of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb is the Safety Priority. On the basis of this Principle all process of training is based, all programs and rounds are developed and carried out only within this main principle. We consider that at professional approach to development of programs, at personal discipline and correctly put motivation - occupations by mountaineering and rock-climbing are COMPLETELY safe. And from the return - all troubles and accidents in our sport come from nonprofessionalism, from ignorance or neglect by elementary standards of safety, from irrational motivation, from revaluation of own forces and opportunities. All these prerequisites we COMPLETELY EXCLUDE in our work - ours Rock-climbing, Ice climbing and Mountaineering are based on one Principle - the Safety Priority. In rock-climbing, mountaineering and ice climbing, the Priority of Safety of MCS AlexClimb-is your personal security and comfort irrespective of, than we are engaged - we train muscles and we work technology of the movement in the sports hall and on the rock climbing wall, we make the way through snowstorm to top or we relax on golden sand of the Caribbean beach after hot day of trainings on rocks. The Safety priority - the main credo of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb.

AlexClimb Rule #2 - Leave No Trace

Closely interacting with Nature, working with the active programs in mountains, woods, lakes and rivers, we perfectly understand the importance of carefull and respectfull bahavior towards the Nature, for its resources. From the very beginning of our outdoor-activity we adopted rules of  Leave No Trace technique - the standard of behavior of the person accepted in all the civilized world in relation to environment and especially - to the wild nature. After all on the relation of people to the nature near which they exist, itself can draw dalekoidushchy conclusions on the relation of these people to... Where and as we didn't travel - we don't reserve any garbage, we try to reduce whenever possible our influence on environment to a minimum. We clear earlier zagryazyonny tourist parking of the left garbage, we take out and we take out to utilization places that to us other people left there. We consider that only thus, at personal individual consciousness of each citizen, each tourist, climber or autotraveller, we will be able to keep the nature surrounding us in its state, natural, suitable for life, - in it pledge of the healthy future for ourselves and our children.

AlexClimb Rule #3 - Sober Concious

The position of AlexClimb Mountain and rockclimbing School regarding healthy lifestyle is quite clear - we consider that only sober consciousness is capable to fill sincere emotions,  to sympathize, to enjoy life in all its variety. Bright various enjoyable life is possible only on condition of keeping the absolute sobriety and purity of consciousness. Any way of obscuring our perception of reality is intended to do harm to our consciousness and bring harm to our physical health, to replace the true values by false ones, to destroy us physically - to turn us into flabby, weak, senseless, gray herd with empty hazy eyes. We don't force anybody to our point of view, everyone has a God's gift of making his own choice and to destroy himself if that is what he wants... But in AlexCilimb Mountain Climbing School we accept quite certain and very simple set of rules: neither alcohol, nor drugs.
