I have been going to Lebanon since 2011
Here is some more information about rock climbing there.

RAD has donated more than 1000 bolts , ropes , gear and a drill to RCL .
With the hope that quality routes would be established in Lebanon....

Actually 2 Welsh climbers visited this spring and establish some some the best lines and harest projects in the country .....

Frenchies Alex C. And Sam B. visited in 2010 and set up several hard lines in the 8 level. In the Holy Valley.
There are several Beginner areas also with good bolts and anchors , with some multi pitch lines even. That we're opened by French in 2000.

Saying that RCL is responsible for MOST of the routes is not accurate.

That being said the potential is mind boggling.
