DescriptionThis is an aesthetic and obvious route on a hanging pillar of light colored stone easily visible from the campsite in the large canyon on the south west corner of Jebel Suweibit. Although only two pitches, this route packs a punch with both pitches being quite physical. The rock is quite soft on the first pitch especially but the gear is good the whole way, and i think we cleaned it up pretty good. Start in the splitter hand crack at the top of the rock gully. The first pitch crux is the crack switch/ roof and is a short but solid 5.11, traverse left after this and build a belay with big cams. The second pitch is steep and sustained the whole way requiring everything from fingers laybacking to squeezing.
Long double rope rap from a bolted anchor to the ground. 70M ropes mandatory.
