400m, 8 pitches. First big route done in Rum by original exploratory team in 1984. Long (about 1km) and varied with about eight 4b/4c pitches, some exposed chimneys and complex route finding in and out of Great Siq. Stunning rock scenery through the huge arch 'The Eye of Allah'. Good views of Rum valley and Um Ishrin summits from top of Dome. Descent by same route.

Inhambane 24 Aug, 2018 AltLd RP 18 hours round trip, long and tiring day, and we knew the way. 38 Deg C. Climbing typically rumesk at the grade, about f5- max, led the first pitch in the dark. Lots of rope drag over the whole route, better to run it out, last pitch was the hardest due to fatigue and its meant to be 3. Descended via route, lots of abseils down to the great siq, keep them short to avoid stuck ropes. Youll be quicker if you are good at scrambling and moving fast through mountainous terrain and soloing small problems
