Description 

The cliffs are in a cool box canyon with a scenic view and a nice short hike. Mostly short routes, 20m and less. There are several trad routes and 4 sport routes.

This area is best for beginners and those looking for short routes. The "Left Side" has 9 sets of top rope anchors bolted.

The left side has shade all day.

Park on the right left side of the road. The Crag is visible on the left. The locals have cleared a private road that leads almost up to the crag. There is a small parking area at the end of the road which can accommodate a few vehicles. remember that this is a private road and parking area and to get permission to utilize it. If you park on the road it is a few hundred meter hike to the canyon. The area is fenced off but is assessable. Fence is to keep live stock in and the locals do not mind or bother us.

Getting There 

After the Wadi Bih turn follow the road for 5km to the t-junction. Turn right and drive for 8km where you will find a left turn (go left, if you go right you will run into the border post). Cleavage is about 8km past the turn on the left. It is a visible canyon from the road. Park on the road and it is about a 10-15 min hike in.

This is a challenging and interesting route. You have to make some equally interesting moves as well.The start to the first bolt is rather tricky. Getting to the second bolt is a bit strenuous but not too bad. The moves to get to the third bolt is where I would place the crux. The route doesn't get much easier after this either. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
