/ Problems crossing from Israel to Jordan with climbing kit?
I'm considering a trip out early this year. Would be interested in hearing any tips you've got for planning. Though why not fly direct into Amman? I've found some really cheap flights. London to Amman £200 return
Wasn't a major problem, but was a bit of a faff. No climbing gear was confiscated. Water and food was taken off us though.
Would be a lot easier to fly direct to Jordan I would say.
Hope you have a good trip.
They took batteries from mobile phones on one of my trips there.
I found i had more trouble getting back into israel from jordan but had crossed the border several times in a couple of months.
The reason for going to Israel first? Partly country bagging and partly not wanting to miss the opportunity of knowing some climbers there and so having a look around!
If anyone is interested in joining we're there 18-28 April, the others all climb sub HVS so I'd be keen for someone with loftier ambitions!
