Description

Jordan is a country full of history and wonder. The local people are generally extremely hospitable and helpful. The weather is similar to the rest of the Middle East, HOT! The local currency is the the Dinar, which is currently .71 to the US Dollar (100 US Dollars = 71 Dinars) [2009]. The best climbing in Jordan can be found in the south, in the vast desert of Wadi Rum, near Petra. I am still working on compiling more data...

Getting There

Fly into Queen Alia International Airport (AMM) in the capital city of Amman.

I am planning to travel to Jordan in November to climb. I have found the book “Treks and Climbs in Wadi Rum, Jordan” by Tony Howard, but I think the book might be outdated? Anyone have ideas on where to get more updated info about climbing in Jordan? And what else to do when in Jordan?

Any ideas and tips would be very welcome!
