Mt Eleazar is the mountain right next to Masada, named for Eleazar, the leader of the group of Zealots in Masada in the bar Kokhba revolt. Although he couldn't get into Masada, the Roman captain could get up on top of this mountain, so he'd yell across the gorge to Eleazar and try to get him to surrender. (Um, yeah. If I was in Masada, I don't think I'd surrender either.)

Yeah... this is right before the spot where I thought I couldn't go any further... but look behind us -- there was nothing to go back to, either. I'm glad I made it to the top, but if I never climb that mountain in 105 degree heat again, I won't be sad. :)
