A guide to treks and climbs in Wadi Rum, Jordan, one of the world's leading desert climbing and trekking areas. Wadi Rum is tucked away in the south of Jordan, close to the Red Sea port of Aqaba, remote and splendid in both landscape and culture, yet only a five-hour flight and a short onward journey from Europe. The first edition of this guide, published in 1987, contained about 140 routes. Since then the number of climbs has doubled. Here are detailed descriptions and topos of all the known routes to date, from short walks, camel treks and 4WD journeys through to sports climbs and major ?big walls' of the highest technical difficulty. Additionally the author, Tony Howard, provides information on sites of antiquity, flora and fauna, and life with the Bedouin. It is their roguish humour and warm hospitality as much as the magnificence of these deserts and mountains that make a visit to Rum a unique experience. This book tells you everything you need to know.
