Route description

East Face of Jebel Dahab


topo by Dave Lucas

Scramble up to the highest point of the
slope below the East Face of Jebel Dahab.
1) Climb up rightward trending
wide gully/crack. Continue to walk
right to the base of a slab with a white
water worn streak. Climb and step
right to the base of a short corner
crack. The left wall is made of very
bad rock, but the right wall is good.
Get into the crack and become
established with a hand jam. A good
edge/crack splits the right wall. Use
this and swing round the right face
and join another crack. Climb this to
ledge. Walk round right to base of
crack (curving corner). Climb this to
join fool’s gold in large corner/crack.
2) Second pitch of fool’s Gold.
