Crucial route finding mistake number one: started in a canyon 300 m to the south. The first part here matched the guidebook description reasonably OK. Then some adventurous route finding across some exposed terraces followed by a few pitches of belayed climbing to the summit ridge. The ridge did no go to the summit however, but led into a big maze of ridges and canyons. Fought for 4 hours to find a way to the summit but failed. A big canyon was in the way. Escaped to Jebel um Rera and it got dark. Cold bivy, adventurous abseils in the morning. Proper mountaineering:)

Aiding 5c chimneys is not usually PD climbing - beware Howards route description, felt pretty vauge to us.. reckon we were totally off route. Still, there was a nice bivvy ledge with loads of firewood..
