Starts with a hike up to Sherri Village. Quite enjoyable and easy, reaching 1050m of elevation starting from Wadi Naqab, Ras Al Khaimah.
From the top of the village, we carry on towards the top of the canyon where you will need scramble down towards the canyon.
This hike starts initially with some downclimb small walls and continue on some ledges where we will find the first abseil drops that make our way down to the start of the canyon.
The abseils (4):
8m: easy and there are fixed hanger with quick links.
42m: to be able to access the second abseil point, you will need to go from the left side of the pool through the tiny ledges. It's doable. Moderate abseil with a lovely overhang.
41m: easy access to the hangers. All fixed and in good conditions. The drop is quite enjoyable with minimum foot work.
60m (the final one to finish on) just right after the 3rd drop, easy to access the hangers. The drop is quite enjoyable and easy.
This hike requires a good level of bouldering and scrambling, sometimes along a non marked or clear way, some other times following the evident canyon winding down.
You need to be know already how to abseil using descenders.
