Rock climbing on The Ranch Rock wall

Rated by 1 user ... share an opinion on The Ranch

The Ranch is currently under development. This are is in a narrow part of the wadi, both sides stay shaded most of the day. However they get a bit of sun for an hour or so around noon. The rock is very solid and smooth for the first 15-20m where is has seen lots of water wash. After that there are lots of loose flakes. The Wadi has a nice breeze and stays a lot cooler in the summer then other areas making it an excellent place to climb in the hot summer months.

This area is conveniently right off of the road. No long approaches required and it is ideal for climbing in the hot summer months.
