These climbing areas are close to the border with the United Arab Emirates, have chiefly been developed by Dubai and Abu Dhabi based climbers, are often thought of as "UAE Climbing" but are technically in Oman.

Getting There 

Drive from Abu Dhabi or Dubai. Due to weird (and still-evolving) border rules, it is more complex to approach from Muscat.

Climbing Season

For the Asia area.
