This is a really unique and interesting climb with good rock and protection the whole way! It traverses a massive sail-shaped flake attached to the south west face of Jebel Arashrasha. This formation is about 2km north west of the northern mouth of Barrah canyon.
p1: Start in a corner about 50 meters right of the sail-flake. The corner takes great gear, and there are ample jugs and huecos on the face. Near the top of the corner traverse left into a very nice steep finger crack that widens to fists over a bulge. Scramble up on top of the pillar and build a belay. .10-
p2: A really unique traverse pitch, equally scary for the leader and follower. Walk across the top of the pillar and down climb into the squeeze chimney, and continue to down climb the fist/ hand crack to a small ledge. Then climb back up a hand crack on the other side forming a loop. (much like the dawn wall loop, maybe not quite as hard.) Backcleaning your gear is mandatory during this sequence. Walk up the steep ramp and build a belay with 3-4" cams at the bottom of the low angle corner, 5.9
p3: Climb the cool and varied corner to a thin crux at the top, bolted anchor .10-

Make 2 double rope raps to the ground.


Two sets of cams including two 4" cams, stoppers.
