The intriguing top pitch of Prince of Persia © climb-tafraout.com

Crag features

A big, multi-pitch crag on the northeast side of the Jebel el Kest massif, comprising of 5 independent towers. Approach is a stiff 1 hour hike from Amzkhssan, but the climbing is worth it when you get there... rather like a bigger and better version of Gimmer!

About 40 routes recorded so far, but there's lots more to go at here, particularly in the upper grades.

Some rationalisation required as all the Ardrar Umlil towers are also listed separately
