Summary

Sport climbing and endless bouldering near Dahab

Description

Wadi Qnai (also translated Gnai or Qunai) is a granite wadi near Dahab. * Vast amounts of perfect bouldering on granite boulders in shaded, sand-floored valleys. * Single and multi-pitch equipped sport routes for all levels in Waterfalls, Camel Canyon, Qnai Atshan and Bedouin Garden (approx 40 routes up to french 7b). * Top roping area especially for beginners and children in Middle Qnai. * Plus new routing possibilities for sport climbs in easily accessible areas.

Access issues

Bedouin guide recommended. Can be a driver/cook if you're arriving fully equipped with climbing buddies. Or you can arrange a climbing guide and equipment rental. Inexpensive, supports local people and you will love seeing how the Bedouin people live in their desert home.

Approach

4x4 taxi from Dahab: 15 mins to wadi entrance, 20 mins to Waterfalls, 40 mins to Bedouin Garden and bouldering area. Beginning of the bouldering area accessible by 4x4, the rest is walk-in (30 mins to the furthest mapped bouldering problems).

Where to stay

Dahab has a mix of accommodation from Bedouin camps to resorts.

Ethic

If you are interested in new routing please contact desert-divers.com. They have a plan for Wadi Qnai and for opening new wadis nearby, and are always looking for teams with new routing experience.
