Description

Belayed by local Bedouin Faisal Amarin on the first pitch, I named the route after his King who shared the same name. I rope soloed the two upper pitches.

Pitch #1: Very featured excellent black sandstone rock in a very dark slot canyon called Siq Bajua part of the Wad Fedray. Start up the featured hard solid rock past some bolts to a two-bolt belay ledge. 5.8, 30m.

Pitch #2: continue up crack climbing and the face holds to another belay. 5.8, 20m.

Pitch #3: Continue to the top and belay. 5.7, 25m

Rappel the route.

Location

Sig Bajeah or Baaga or Ba Ja is a dark slot canyon well known to locals in Little Petra. Without assistance, it may be difficult to locate this area. The rock is consistently the best quality I ever experienced in Jordan.

Protection

A trad rack is necessary to supplement the fixed protection. Belays and rappel stations are bolted.
