Musandam is the northern enclave of Oman, at the tip of the Arabian Peninsula just a few km from Iran across the contentious Straits of Hormuz. Though a large proportion of the world's oil supply passes through the Straits in tankers, the coast is wild and beautiful with some of the most spectacular sea cliff scenery on the planet. Inland Musandam is also comprised almost entirely of limestone mountains and has some highly-developed climbing areas.
Drive from Dubai either north to Khasab (requires a formal border crossing) or east to Dibba (an informal border crossing). The access and border issues are described in more detail within the crag notes.
