This is a sport/trad route. the firs section is bolted. The bolted section can be climbed on trad if you have about about 5-6 size 4 cams and bigger. These size cams are very hard to come by as it, let alone trying to find 5 of them in the UAE.

Description:

It is a very challenging and rewarding route and yet another great route put up by John Gregory. This is a great mixed sport and trad route. The hardest portion of the route is bolted. The last section is pretty easy trad climbing for about 10meters to the abseil anchors. The first portion, the approach to the first bolt is on very sharp rock. Once you get to the top of the block is where you will find the first bolt, follow the crack up. The route up the crack is mostly smooth. There isn't many places for great foot placement, most of the foot holds are rather smooth but there are a few good spots for foot jams. The bolted portion of the route is full fist jams and awkward moves.

Descent Options:

Abseil anchors at the top.
