DescriptionPretty well covered in Larry Michienzi's Oman Rock Climbing digital guidebook available via Rakkup, this area is a nice "first stop" on your Oman road trip. Shade is easy to follow. Multi-pitch sport climbs of all grades could be established here, but so far, single pitch sport climbs are the only routes that grace this big wall towering above.
One multi-pitch trad climb has been established.
Car camping is easy and convenient at the mouth of Kubra Canyon and driving there is all paved except for the last 500m on a good dirt road. No 4x4 or high clearance vehicle is needed.
Getting ThereA relatively short drive from the Muscat Airport. Flying into Dubai tends to be cheaper and and has better connections, but plan on extra time for the border crossings and make sure that your rental car from Dubai has insurance for driving in Oman.
Best explanation for getting there is again relying on Larry's excellent digital guidebook.
