Getting ThereThis area is in the Ghubrah Bowl, at the head of Wadi Mistal. From the Quorum roundabout in Muscat, drive towards
Sohar until the large Barka roundabout. There turn left towards Nakhal; you will reach it after 31km. Continue on the
main road for 15km past Nakhal. At the Wadi Mistal sign turn left, then continue for 27km up the main dirt road, then
turn left for Hadash (in 2008 the sign was missing; veer left at the sign showing Al Hegar to the right) and continue
up the steep track for 4km to the tiny village of Hadash (low-range 4WD required). While on dirt roads, if passing any
pedestrians or people in open vehicles please drive very slowly and do not cover them with dust. Hand greetings and
accepting requests for lift will be appreciated. Park just before the village (before the flat area and 30m before the
walking track sign) where there is a nice flat pull-out for 2 cars on the right side.
Walk on the road right (west) through the village, where it ends. Traverse the rubbish-filled gully at the back of the
village and then follow the path along the purple scree slope to the large cliff on the other side. Follow the path along
a contour past the cliff until it eventually leads past all the climbing crags, some 1km from the village and out of line
of sight. You will first walk 20m below the Sulfureuse and Black Crags, then right under the Wall with Roofs and into
The Pit. The whole walk should take at most 20 minutes.
