In the past climbers (including myself) have camped at the crag at wadi Dykia. Normally this is fine. However, with the new dam they built it seems that even when there are blue skies and no rain for a few days the wadi gets flooded by the release of the dam.


A few days ago we had rain and climb at dykia later that week. A day and a half later is was flooded. Apparently the dam builds up water and at a certain point they have to release the water. If you were camping there you most likely would have lost your car and maybe your life. Best avoided! Visiting climbers, your 4X4 is likely not insured for this so be careful, this could turn into a very expensive trip for you!
