Oman: Bouldering Guidebook

Oman: Bouldering by Jamie Moss & Gary Goldfinger Climbing in Oman Facebook Muscat Sport Climbing Guidebook | Sharaf Al Alameyn Sport Climbing Guidebook | Oman: Deep Water Soloing Guidebook

Boulders are everywhere in Oman. Every range of hills is criss-crossed by dry river canyons – wadis – and every wadi is littered with blocks of all sizes. Not all of them are good for climbing on though – some are too weathered, some are smooth and hold-less, and some are just too plain big. In this guide we’ve done the hard work for you – hand-picking over 400 of the best problems from around 100 of the best blocks in more than 20 venues around the country.
There are a couple of world-class bouldering venues in Oman – Damian’s Boulders in the Musandam Peninsula and Umq Bir aka ‘Valley of Giants’ to the south of Muscat. These are covered in full detail. Most of the described bouldering is in the Musandam and Muscat areas, although the guide also includes some brand new developments from Salalah in the far south. A wide range of problems are available (V0-V12), although most of the development has been in the low to mid grades so far.

For almost 8,000 years native people have lived around the Olympic Mountains. The Duwamish of the Salish sea call them ‘Sun-a-do’, and the ancestors of the Klallam have been living, hunting and gathering in the high mountains since time immemorial.The Spanish sailed along the coast in 1774 and named the highest peak, Cerro Nevado de Santa Rosalia. In 1788, the British Explorer Roger Meares renamed the highest peak, Mt Olympus because it looked like the ‘abode of the gods.’ and just like that the Olympic Mountains became part of the European map.The 1890s saw climbers begin ascending the summits of Mt. Olympus, with the main summit finally being climbed in 1907. Deer Park became Washington’s premier ski area in the mid 1930s. The Hurricane Ridge road was built in the early 50s and the ski area moved from Deer Park, establishing a new winter recreation center for the Olympic National Park. Ski touring began along the roads of Deer Park and Hurricane Ridge and shifted to the Bailey Range and the higher peaks in the 1990s.
