    So there we have the main problem for the case for Har Karkom as Mount Sinai (there are several problems but this one seems to be the ‘kill’ shot). Har Karkom is much too close to Kadesh-barnea at Ayn Qudayrat to be the mountain of the exodus journey and of Elijah’s excursion to Mount Sinai via Beersheba (1 Kgs 19). The same argument applies to other candidates in the Northern Sinai, which have sometimes been proposed, for example, Jebel Halal, Jebel Maghara, etc.
