Description

Hike about 400m alongside the base of the wall from Obeid's Bedouin Camp and look for the unique alcove or cave like feature. The entire route mostly follows a prominent black water streak which seems to have maintained the consistently superb solid rock quality you will find on this side of the Al Hasani formation.

Pitch #1: Start up and weave your way through the first steep hole using creative protection. 5.6, 30m.

Pitch #2: Broken up ground leads to a featured section that climbs past a roof to a nice ledge. 5.7, 30m.

Pitch #3: Continue up nice crack systems to another ledge and belay. 5.7, 30m.

Pitch #4: Now go up and right, then back left up bomber black colored rock on thin face holds passing 6 bolts to a roof. After the roof, clip two more bolts and reach a two bolt belay. 5.9+, 30m.

Descend off to the left scrambling and one 30m rappel.

Location

This route is on Al Hasani, the big broad wall that towers above Disi and Obeid's Bedouin Camp. You can walk from Obeid's about 400m left toward the Bedouin Camel Boys, which is further and around the corner. Like its name implies, one climbs through a hole and then on through to another hole. Always shady and cool, this is a fun climb to escape the heat.

Protection

QDs and a small collection of Camalots and Nuts. Most of the fixed bolted protection is found on the final stellar pitch.
