011: Rock Climbing in Oman with Read Macadam
5 days ago
You probably didn't know it, but Oman is a fantastic place for rock climbing. There are some challenges with the heat, but the rock is fantastic, and the climbing community is even better. Strap on your climbing shoes we are going to the crag. I met up with local rock climber and professional life coach Read Macadam to give us an insight into the climbing community and the ongoing development here in the Sultanate. We talk about some of the places to climb like Hadash, Khubrah Canyon, Wadi Dayqah, Umq Bir, Jebal Misht, and Bandar Jissah. In these places alone you will find world class bouldering, sport climbing, trad-climbing, multi-pitches, and deep water soloing. Read also made a film called Valley of the Giants which features himself, Philippe Ribière and Dan Bates. In it the trio explore a remote wadi that features giant limestone boulders. The film really gives you a good flavor of rock climbing in Oman. You can view the film here. So, come along as we go rock climbing in Oman with Read Macadam.
