Hi,
I'm a student at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, and I'm quite into climbing indoors, and have done a little outdoors but would like to do more; but as you may know, it rains A LOT in Scotland.

I'm coming to Oman on a work placement for July-August 2007 but I've heard that it is too hot to be active at that time of year... I was wondering if there are any climbing-type activities that can still be done in summer? Moon-lit climbing? Caving?

Any advice; and information on the best places to seek out partners would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

- Khalid.

Dear Khalid

well you certainly chose a hot time to come to Oman.. it is the hottest time of the year and outdoor climbing pretty much stops at the end of April as the temperature soars...

There are a few things that can keep you amused though... Via Ferratas, hiking and caving.... also check out the links to Snake gorge....

It is also a time when most of us run off to colder parts of the world for a couple of months if possible... BUT you never know... some might be here still...

Keep posting and see whos around - affraid I'll be in the Uk...

Tony.
