What a nightmare! I'm flying out to work on Wednesday and I only have a 20kg allowance to take luggage on the airline.
With clothes for work I'm tapped out and going to get penalised 20Euros for every Kilo over.
Climbing gear is not light!
I'm paying a heavy price for bringing my gear folks, the climbing had better be good. Very Happy
See you all on the crag.
Rob

Is changing your airline an option? If not, then maybe you should just bring the basics: harness, shoes, perhaps a belay device. In fact, don't bring the belay device; we found a DMM Bug a few weeks back you're welcome to. You'll have to climb with a partner in any case, and most of us have equipment. You can probably buy new gear in Dubai (or through various devious channels) for less than 20 Euros per kilo.

The climbing in Oman is good, and the best season is just starting.

Thanks for the reply Bill, but I was just venting. It'll be fine I'm sure.
I have everything packed: shoes, harness, rope, belay, fig8, QD's (lots of) so have everything I need apart from strength and a head for heights!
See you all very soon.
Rob
