This instructor and those religious girls were about to go over the cliff of Makhtesh Ramon.
Enlarge this photo with two separate clicks and you can see where they are headed.
It is just a ledge a few dozen meters down.
NOT the whole 500 meters down to the makhtesh floor.
There they go!
The Israel Nature and Parks Authority sign has all the instructions for this rappelling site
Even the number to call at the Visitors Center if you come across damaged clamps in the stone (!).
The ropes, the pack.
Oi, I'm glad it's not my kids down there.
