Hiking to the start
Cross the wadi bed to reach the base of the cliffs at the top right of the cirque.
The route is about 150m long in 3 pitches (50m, 50m, 50m). No equipment in place, but bring a full set of friends and stoppers.
L1 (50m, 4b)
No difficulty apart from the slightly crumbly rock on this first pitch. Belay on a wide ledge. Lots of rocks threatening to fall as the rope passes.
L2 (50m, 4c)
Starts in a fine crack, then turns left to finish in a nook ideal for climbing the belay. Excellent rock.
L3 (50m, 4c)
Aerial exit from the belay, then a series of small walls and a flat area in the hollow of a large chimney. A few finer steps. Relay 3 at the end of the rope on the exit ledge. Finish climbing without too much difficulty to reach the ridge.
The way out is very impressive, following the left-hand bend, sometimes no more than a metre wide... and almost at night. Fortunately, Aiden is our guide. Descent through a ravine much further on, this time at night. Return to the starting parking lot via the wadi bed.
