As we get a few days off for EID I'm hoping to get some climbing in.
What is everyones plans? does anyone have any room for a straggler?
I'm light on camping kit, but can get hold of a cheap tent and sleeping slug and possible roll mat. No cooking kit however.
I've got my climbing kit with me including rope. Not climbed for 6 weeks or so now so out of practice. Normally HVS / 5+ grade.
Only been given a crappy little hire car too so getting around the hills is an issue.
Normally have to work Thursday morning for some bizarre reason so weekend climbing is few and far between.
Any and all help appreciated.
Rob

hey, I am definitly 100% needing to climb this Eid..I have had a weekend off due to be being kicked out of the country on a visa run so I am full of beans!! Would be great to get out camping for a bit aswel if poss. My dad arrives tomorrow for the hols so he will be coming to..luckily he climbs : ) he is also bringing my rope and quick draws : ) I dont really fancy gorgette as i doubt that i can lead anything there..also its so sharp!

So..who is going climbing, when, where and larry can you be persuaded to go somewhere else? : ) Also I would like to go to the turtle beach if anyone is up for it?

Who's up for climbing wednesday, somewhere local - Khubrah perhaps? (need to be back in Muscat for 630pm).

+ Thursday-Friday camping/climbing, location undecided, so far me and TRI.

If your going fairly local and a 4x4 is not required i'd like to come along on Tuesday could bring another novice along too as she's keen to learn.
970 48294 for calls or text.
