Abu Mahmoud Cliff (Cinema)

13 bolted, 1 trad climb, and 14 head so far.

Situated in the north of Jordan, approximately 1 hour away from Amman, Cinema is a beautiful crag with a great variety of interesting routes ranging from 5a+ to 7b+. The reason for its name becomes obvious very quickly, as locals passing by on the road often stop to watch and yell encouragement from their cars. There have been access issues with this area in the past, so we ask that any climbers who come here would be quiet, respectful, and clean, and would make sure to avoid parking or driving on any of the land being used for farming.

Directions:

Take the road that goes from Jerash to Ajloun when arriving from Amman.

 

 

 

 

 

 

At the intersection where you can see the ruins of Hadrian's Arch you will make the left towards Ajlun. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After reaching the village of Sakib uphill you will pass under a pedestrian bridge. Almost immediately after that you take the road on your left that goes down towards Umm Jawza.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You drive for about 6km after crossing Sufsafa village. You will see the cliff on your left, super nice grey and red rock.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

View from the side of the road just past the cliff.
