"Farside" is a new crag which is being developed by the famous John Gregory and friends. This past weekend Mr. Gregory along with his two sons, Ian and Chris worked and several other friends worked very hard to put up the new routes. They have been busy working on this area, coming out and cleaning the routes every weekend for the past few weeks.
There are 7 routes on this face. 6 of them have been led so far. There is 1 sport route, a mixed sport and trad route and 5 trad routes.
All of the routes have been led except for one.
If you decide to climb here before it is finished please be courteous to those who are putting in all of the hard work and give them the right to make the FA.

After the Wadi Bih sign follow the road for 5km to the t-junction. Turn right and drive for 8km where you will find a left turn (go left, if you go right you will run into the border post). Near Side/Junction is about 12km past the turn on the left and 4km past Dickinadozer/Cleavage. Near Side/Junction is visible on the right (East) next to the road. Far Side is across the road from Near Side, on the left.
