petecallaghan 20 Jan, 2019 AltLd O/S 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.

Neil Adams 14 Nov, 2017 AltLd dnf 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

masa-alpin 14 Nov, 2017 AltLd dnf 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.
