The route starts on the left part of a big slab looking like a pyramid. Above the beginning of the first garden(Bustan) in Wadi Leja(Arbain).

Reach a narrow dyke (IV, III) follow that to the top of pyramid(IV), then keep to R of big chimney till a big terrace(III, IV+, (V-). Walking right till continuation of chimney and follow to the top (III, IV). Exit through diedre with chimney. Approx. 200m.

comment by Misha: The route was not very good. Not much interesting climbing. There are broken rocks. Approximate difficulty 3B. Too lazy to describe. It's more logical to go F13 Hourglass.
