Crag features

This area is made up of 4 distinct sub-areas. From left-right and in order of arrival along the wadi road: Storm, Lightning Bay, Thunder Gorge, and Holey Cave. The main area is Thunder Gorge, which is close to a small attractive house, often flying an emirati flag. Thunder is bigger than its outliers, and has more variety.

Routes mainly pioneered by Ralph Heath.

Approach notes

Park 1.9km beyond the telecoms tower, on Wadi Shahah road. Crag is on the left, going up the road. Split into two tiers, Thunder crag is the area around the water washed rock in the gorge base.
