text

Overlooking St. Catherine village, this Mountain features a prominent Corner on its northeastern end, steep and well protected crack systems and it has a bolted rappel

Access

To get to the bottom of the NW Corner it is easiest to take a rather straight line up from the Rasees Area, still before entering Wadi Arbain. To get to the East Face it is necessary to cross the Wadi Arbain Checkpoint and then approach the foot of the wall after a few hundred meters up on the left
