Front Gate was easier for us!
Hill Side Fortress would have been hard to attack

Canons and the hillside Fortress of Shegar
7 April 2005 GPS-pos: °' | °' | Alt: 0 M
In 1904-05 the British required most of their 8,000 troops and canons to break down the front gate to this hillside fortress, we took a more subtle approach uses smiles and just walked up the front track and used the day as an acclimatisation walk. The only Canons we used were made in Japan and took photographs rather fired lead shot.
A great day walk and some fantastic nomads living in the surrounds. Everyone seemed to enjoy the trip. Back to the hotel for some interesting plumbing experiences - not all the pipes were connected correctly and this caused various incidents.
