Rugged mountains to get lost, deep caves to climb out, endless desert to watch the stars… Oman has got it all. And best of all, there’s still endless potential for first ascents. The most memorable day was when we lowered 110m into the 7th Hole Cave, on Salma Plateau and climb out along a line called “Out of the Dark”. A dirty, narrow 3 pitch 6b chimney trad line. Truly scary, truly stunning!
