Where St. John Climacus Lived in Asceticism (photos)

According to tradition, the place where St. John Climacus lived in asceticism was in a desert cave located in Wadi Et-Tlah of Sinai, approximately 8 kilometers from the Holy Monastery of Saint Katherine at the foot of Mount Sinai. This is why St. John Climacus is also known as "the Sinaite".
