  2. Awkward moves into a cave, pull through overhang with good holds

  3. Two grovely corners

  4. Slab then layback on sandy open holds

Descent: 2 Rappels, 50m each, down the right side of the route. 1st from big boulder on the right. 2nd from belay at the top of pitch 2.

South face of Abu Maileh Tower, in front of the East Face of Jebel Rum. 15 minutes from the resthouse. The little tower, the "Camel's Head" (30 meter), can be clearly distinguished when looking from the campground of the resthouse. Walk up from between the farm and the temple.

Brilliant and hard short toprope routes on perfect rock. The belays (bolt) of the routes can be easily reached by scrambling up the right corner to gain the ledge 15 m above.
