A ramp three feet wide, flanked on its left side by a slightly lower ramp, or ledge, makes a gradual ascent to the top of the Mt. Ebal altar. The ledge turns left, or north, when it meets the altar top and gradually widens on the altar’s north side. In this view from the west, we see the 23-foot-long ramp and two courtyards, one on either side of the ramp.
