Route description

SE Face of Jebel Dahab


topo by Dave Lucas

The line takes great line up Jebel Dahab’s SE face.
1) 30m. 5a. Move into the corner and climb to an offwidth on a slab and then follow a
small crack to a ledge. Climb the hand cracks up for a few meters before moving right
into the groove. Traverse (hand) right into corner and onto a ledge.
2) 30m. 5c. Climb up a green crack left of the offwidth. Gain a small ledge and move
right into the corner. Climb up below a small bulge below the twin cracks and then
climb to the capping overhung boulder. Climb over this with force and let the brutality
of the climb skin your hands. Look out for friable rock.
3) 30m. 5a.From the top of the boulder climb into the groove chimney above. This levels
out to another short chimney. Climb past loose blocks into the labyrinth of “crack of
Thunder”. Climb a short chimney then take the left hand branch to the top
