Nice route. Route finding wasn't too tricky. Usual loose rock, which seems a defining characteristic of most of the routes we climbed. We continued to the summit of Burdah and descended via the North Ridge route. This was the crux really: complex route finding and some hairy short down climbs/scrambles. The rock bridge is cool, and the whole massif spectacular. We camped at the base of the east of Burdah, below the rock bridge.

Brought up the rear of a big merry party. Probably lost the route around P5 but it was a fun day out. and the rock bridge is grand!

Must have been off route. I tried to lead a V groove pitch through the top steep band but everything I pulled on or stood on disintegrated so I backed off. 2 abseils and some downclimbing got us back to the central slabs, then we traversed way R to the Bedouin Arch Route

Failed to figure out which way to go in the upper section. The line Neil tried to lead looked most terrifying with very soft sandstone.
