Description

Very popular crag in the area. It is the closest to RAK besides "Disc World". It has rather solid and good quality rock, however you will still find flakes and loose rock. The ridge above the routes where the anchors is full if unstable and loose rock so watch your step and be wary of those below. The area also is shaded throughout the day. The routes vary in length from 9m to 30m. Some of the longer routes can be climbed in one or two pitches.

Mostly trad but there are 3 difficult short sport routes on steep rock that has been cleaned very well. Almost all of the routes on the "Lower Level" have TR anchors at the top as well. You can access the top by scrambling up the gully on the far left or far right side. The gully on far right just past the "North-West Right" has anchors bolted going from the corner at the ground up and to the left to set up a Via Feratta line to make access easier and safer.

This area is labeled as the "Roadside Area" in the guide book. It also goes by "Roadside Crag" and "Roadside Buttress". There is also another area in a different wadi named "Roadside."
