We had a days bouldering in Dahab as part of a middle east holiday about 8 years back.

Absolutely loved it! Guided by a someone from (probably) the same diving shop, our driver also made us some incredible tea. Perfect temps in the shade, didn't see anyone else all day and at the end of the day you can swim in the red sea, have amazing food and finish with a shisha and game of backgammon. 

Heaven

Is it easy enough to fly with mats or can you hire there?

Our guide had mats - but this was ages ago so things might have changed.

Many years ago (10 +?) I did some climbing out that way, went with a ‘local’ expat - when we walked back towards town we had guns pointed at us at a checkpoint, they weren’t happy we just emerged from the dark out of nowhere. 

took a lot of convincing and a few packets of cigarettes to pass ; )

There are also miles of scrambling routes around Dahab, described in the guide book "Dahab's Walking and Scrambling: a route guide". These can 26 routes can be followed independently.
