Oman: Deep-Water Soloing

by Jamie Moss & Larry Michienzi

Muscat in the Sultanate of Oman might be the only capital city in the world with high quality deep-water soloing within the city limits. DWS makes perfect sense in Muscat with its complex rocky coastline surrounded by a warm calm Indian Ocean. Oman has an enviable climate making DWS a year-round pursuit. This guide details over 200 routes across the three most accessible cliffs developed so far. Some sectors are lowball and bouldery in nature and provide a great introduction to the sport (V0-V7), whereas other are taller and more committing (F5-F8a/5.7-5.13b).

Sectors in alphabetical order:
