Many find climbing the 140 feet of ladders and stone stairs at Alcove House to be one of the highlights of their visit. Do you think you would have felt differently if you had to climb into this housing area multiple times every day, carrying food, water, and small children? What benefits of this elevated location would have made that worthwhile? To protect this place be sure you stay inside the designated area. Climbing into other sections of this alcove erode the soft earth and create potentially devastating damage to the site.
