Hammad's Route*** AD
[Bob, Brian and Vic descending Hammad's Route above Wadi Rum, 3 kb]750m. An enjoyable and direct route to the summit with few technical problems. The route passes through very unusual mountain scenery and can be done in day without problem. Jebel Rum Summit 1754.About 750m height gain but 2km in distance! 5 or 6 roped pitches up to 4c. It's also the major way off this mountain (all abs equipped) so you need to know it before doing other routes or chances are you may get lost looking for it...
