Wadi Rum, the ultimate desert adventure
Climbing in Wadi Rum involves much more than many climbers expect. Labyrinthine approaches, long descents, the heat of the desert and the feeling of loneliness in a gigantic and endless landscape. To climb in Wadi Rum, it is better to have some experience in trad climbing, since you will hardly ever find bolts, route finding is sometimes tricky and the fragility of the sandstone will test your mind on each route. One thing is for sure, you won't go back home the same.
