Stardust is a must go place for rock climbing in UAE.

It's the largest site in UAE of easy access and therefore it's extremely popular, sometimes counting up to 30 cars parked at the bottom.


It's a canyon named after a David Bowie song, which passed away in the same period when this place was discovered and named.

The walls forming the canyon are as high as 3-400m, with an incredible view of the wall leading up to Jebel Jais, which is 1500m tall.


Development of this Wadi has started in 2015 and since then has exploded in the number of routes, also thanks to the incredible efforts of Ludmil Trenkov, a restless bolter that, with the help of few climbers, has bolted practically all the routes here.

There are single climb routes and multipitch, all very generously bolted and incredible rock structures.
