First route in Wadi Rum, very nice introduction to the area including the walk in! Direct bit on pitch 4 very nice about Fr 6b ish I thought. Whimped out on last pitch, looked like a solo with the gear we had!
sebrider - AltLd O/S - 07/Mar/11 with Dan Walker

Nice direct pitch (Fr 6c?) on pitch 4 misses out the sandy chimney. Excellent crack climbing at about E1 5b with a wide top pitch (Cams up to 5 + 6 were useful...)

I would agree with Chad123. Climbed the direct 4th pitch (6b+?) and a BD #5 cam useful to top pitch!
