Description 

One of the easiest countries to travel around in the Middle East and North Africa. Safe and friendly. There is more rock than you can imagine (almost all limestone). The mid-winter climate is perfect.

Getting There 

For the main "proper" Oman region, fly into Muscat, or fly to Dubai and drive into Oman (may be cheaper and more flexible).

For North-West Oman and Musandam, fly into Dubai and drive.

The line of the cliff. A long route climbing a tricky buttress, then alpine-style ridge, then a complex headwall. It is just possible in a day for a fast team prepared to simul climb easy sections. There are a only a handful of hard pitches.There is a detailed description here: foordkelcey.net/uae/misht_fp_t......[more]   Browse More Classics in International
