Hi, I am the forum admin and like to welcome all the new members, also a big hello to the Dhofari group of trekkers!
Regarding the interest to learn climbing, we unfortunately dont have Nasim in the country anymore, she offered climbing courses recently but left for greener pastures. I suggest to join the local community on a trekking tour first, this in turn may also lead to the necessary contacts.
There is a trek announced for coming Friday the 29th Apr. in our OMC section.
Have a good time!
Reinhard

Hi,

I'm Dirk. I have been living in Dubai for 6 years. I have been hiking/trekking mainly around the UAE and a few times in Oman in the Nizwa area.

With a climbing experienced friend coming over in spring 2011 I'll do hopefully the Jebel Shams via ferrata that I have been standing in December 2007 before and shied away. Wink

Dirk.

Hi i'm Dylan,

Over in Oman working for the next 3 months, back to the UK in July. Looking to meet people to go out climbing with. Have equipment for 2 people to climb any Sport routes out here (60m rope, 14 quick draws, slings 120 and 240, chalk, 2 harnesses, 2 belay devices, Krabs). Been climbing now for nearly a year and happy leading F6a+ but looking to push my grade, competent belayer. Also looking at doing a bit of DWS (been told there's quite a bit around the Dive Centre) and also some bouldering, possibly a few visit to the indoor wall. Give me a shout if you fancy getting out there and clipping some bolts.

Look forward to hear from you

Hello, I'm Martin (and Sharron as well!) from Wicklow (near Dublin) Ireland. We visited Oman for the first time last month and fell in love with the place and all the outdoor activities. So much in fact that we will be back in early May for more (before some business appointments in Abu Dhabi and Dubai).

I have some specific questions which I'll post soon.

Hi all

This is Ahmed AL Jabri working for SQU (Sultan Qaboos University) doing paper work during the week, then on Wed at 2:30 I switch my mood and enjoy my weekend somewhere in a mountain, wadi, or just relaxing on beach sand. I do hiking, bouldering and climbing. I set my own website bringing together all my trips photos.

Hey Ahmed, I am in the same sort of activities and work for SQU too. Can you post the URL address of your website.
Cheers

Hi, my name's Peter. My wife and I have just moved to Nizwa and will be here for a year at least. Working at Nizwa College of Applied Sciences. Looking to get out climbing regularly, (and walking and scrambling for that matter!). Only have harness, shoes and belay here at the moment, but planning to improve that situation one way or the other!

Looking forward to meeting some of you!

Peter

Name is Anton Russel. With a passion for nature friendly exploration trips and environmental related studies to develop awareness about the need for preservation of nature, we all tend to meet at the right time in this country.

Ready for any journey on legs(preferred) or on motors if needed and with a background of trekking in the himalayas and australia,i am sure Oman should be possessing a greater challenge.

Glad too see a group sharing the same tastes like I do and since I am new to this country,I would definitely be looking forward for some memorable days during my assignment in this wonderful desert.

Rest of the information shall follow actions if that would be fine.

Are we good now?
