On this trip we have combined a little bit of hiking, scrambling and climbing.
This is a medium level trip due to the balance required to navigate. However, it is not as physically demanding in terms of cardio. The bouldering can be challenging in some parts and a good understanding of this nature is required. However, this trip is not technical and no rope skills are involved. If you are sports active, have good fitness, and want to challenge yourself then this trip is for you.
This is a new route that we have recently design to offer you an exciting experience to discover a different side of Wadi Showka.
