Description 

The Narrows is named thus because it is in a very narrow portion of the wadi.

In the summer the right side of the crag is in the shade all mooring until around 12 then again around 3pm. The left side is shaded all day. In the winter both sides of the crag are shaded all day. A light breeze usually flows through all day as well keeping it cool.

Depending on the route the rock can range from very smooth and polished to rough and sharp.

Most of the routes here are very steep and overhanging.
