Spring 2018 World to Wyoming Series with Mark Jenkins Camels, Climbing and St. Catherine: An Expedition to Egypt” and “What in the World?” Student International Fieldwork Presentations

Hidden in the heart of the desert mountains of the Sinai Peninsula are enormous walls and domes of red granite. It’s an unknown little Yosemite on the edge of the Middle East. In November, Mark Jenkins led a 4-man team of Wyoming climbers to South Sinai in search of unclimbed rock. The team lived with the Bedouins, traveled by camel caravan and put up new routes on 1000-foot walls of shining granite.

South Sinai is a pivotal region in the three Abrahamic religions: Christianity, Judaism and Islam. It was on Mount Sinai that Moses is said to have received the Ten Commandments.  The team hiked the 3000 “Steps of Repentance” to the summit of Mt. Sinai along with dozens of pilgrims, Muslims, Christians and Jews.  At the base of Mt. Sinai lies Saint Catherine’s Monastery, built in 565 A.D. upon the site where Moses saw the burning bush. Named after Catherine of Alexandria who was sentenced to death on the spiked wheel, St. Catherine’s is the oldest continuously operating monastery in the world. Christians and Muslims have lived here in harmony for over a millennium---there’s even a mosque inside the monastery.

Camels, Climbing and St. Catherine: An Expedition to Egypt is a presentation about an epic expedition to climb big walls in a remote land, about Christian monks and Bedouin nomads, about a place where tolerance is more powerful than terrorism.
