The climbing is consistently the steepest in Oman’s sport climbing selection, with warm ups consisting of jugs and ledge hopping to get your balance in check. Once the forearms are tenderized, 3 stellar 6c’s rise 30m to the left before the canyon forks (Take the left fork after a slippery scramble to try your nerves on quite exposed Giraffe 6b+). Don’t miss out on hang-doggin’ the 5-6 move crux of Encence Interdit 6b+, or Asolo Malequoum’s ,7b ,20-degree off-vertical tufa cement pinches. Because La Gorgette connects Bilad Sayt to the main road leading up and eventually over the range, expect to see happy Omani children bringing chips and what not through the canyon as you climb. Revel in this, as the fresh faces cheer you on.
