Ascent Trip Report

We arrived at Masada a little later than we wanted since we planned on hiking to the top and it was becoming ugly hot. We started up the trail and even passed by the sign saying trail closed until later in the day when not so hot. Passed several parties laboring in the heat. Luckily there is little sun shelters along the way.

This peak is obviously noted more for the history than the actual hike.

Can see the Dead Sea and into Jordan from the top.
