BETA PHOTO: This is a picture of the left side of Tawiyan Crag...
Tawiyan Crag is effectively the UAE's only pure sport climbing cliff (*), with a good collection of 7a-7c routes on mostly water-washed solid rock.
The cliff is described in detail in "UAE Rock Climbing" (2009) www.cordee.co.uk/cca395.php
[* All the other popular sport areas accessible from the UAE cities are technically in Oman. There is some limited sport climbing on the UAE cliffs near Ras Al Khaimah but the bias of development for many years there has been trad routes.]
Just north of the town of Tawiyan. The location is described in the guidebook.
Climbing Season For the Asia area.

Easy first pitch (~5.5). Belay second pitch from double bolts above the rappel point. Carefully climb through very lose choss until the roof slopes out. Climb big jugs to a couple smaller holds at the crux. Pull back onto vertical and then around to the left to get the chains.The climb is a bit soft for the grade but has been left at the grade if you can climb it without killing your belayer with loose rock. Helmets are suggested, but not usually used. Grigri is also suggested....[more] Browse More Classics in International
