Ascent Trip Report

I flew to Beirut and took a taxi to The Cedars ski resort at the base of Qurnat as Sawda. The resort had just closed for the season. The next morning I hiked up the bare ski slopes to a snowy plateau around 9,000ft. I hiked across the plateau and eventually reached the rocky summit. In all it was about a 15-mile hike. There's so much snow up high that I bet some of it will last into the summer.
