Ascent Trip Report

Birthday adventure!

I've been here before with a group but I brought my girlfriend (now wife) this time.

This is a reconstructed IDF fortress looking down over Syria. Fortifications and turrets are still there, though no weaponry. Bring a headlamp and explore a couple tunnels and rooms below.

Chocolate cake in the cafe to celebrate my bday. Drove back to Tiberias going the long way South around the Kinneret down the borders of Syria and Jordan. Went rafting on the Jordan River the following day.
