Crazy Ibex, a Bedouin route to climb Um Ishrin mountain in Wadi Rum


This is a one day trip, includes three pitches climb, one traverse and many abseils on the way back. Even though it might seem easy, a good knowledge of Wadi Rum style climbing is necessary, it is exposed all way through and constantly requiring attention and accuracy, it is recommended to be done by two or three people (experienced climbers) not more, otherwise a lot of time can be lost on the rope.

Camping at the start is good, summer days are long but sunny, in winter any little rain will make the mountain very slippery.

The track in the map IS NOT ACCURATE, do not use it as a guide. We recommend Abood Hijazi for guiding this trip. Thank you Marco Richon..
