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...

In descent after Pillar of Wisdom. Bloody hard to find in the dark, hence the bivvy on top.

An amazing experience! We lost the route somewhere on the plateau and had to find our own way to the summit (with some rather heart-in-mouth abseiling and slab climbing), but the whole thing was incredible from start to finish. A star-filled bivouac up high on the summit plateau, with the attending desert sunset and sunrise, turned it into a proper mountaineering adventure. Everyone should climb this route! :)

Long route, chimney pitches felt HVS 5c'ish.

Descent from Jebul Rum after a night in the high desert in the rain. Much quicker in daylight and with two sneak abs straight into the valley avoiding the ridge at the end.

In descent after thaumudic route, much quicker this time as daylight and knew the route!

Epic descent mostly in the dark after taking too long on Rijm Assaf. Descending through the great siq in the pitch black was very atmospheric!

Long route - Chimney pitches out of the Great Siq felt about HVS 5b, much easier in descent!

Got to top of abseils out of Great Siq but had to turn back as running out of time.
