This activity is also for people new to rock climbing but with already quite some experience in outdoor, hiking and familiar with altitude and exposure! We will be strapping on the harness, the helmet and come down from cliffs of rock with rope and repelling equipment.
This trip will be limited to 8 participants only to ensure each person has adequate supervision by the guides and trainers!

The timing is weather and conditions dependent. Our intention is to start early morning (between 7 and 9am) and finish by 2-4pm)
We start the hike from the Jebel Jais road through the Samar trails down to the start point of the canyon (which is essentially a dry river bed) where we will abseil, hike scramble and pass large boulders.
The lead guide will set up the ropes and prepare and descent gear to the participants (no need previous experience with this). The participant will then have to descent steep walls until the base of the wall, under the supervision of the guide to then continue the hike.
