Old Fuhais: Hakim's Cliff

19 bolted routes so far..

This cliff was one of the first climbing areas to be bolted and established in Jordan! A good selection of routes with a variety of easy to moderate climbs. Unfortunately, several of the first and second bolts have been stolen or damaged. Some of the anchors are also missing. There are a few climbs that are still doable if you are confident and don't mind a little bit of runout  until you reach the second bolt, but please, be careful and don't take any unnecessary risks. Work towards restoring this classic site is ongoing. 

Directions:

Take the same road as the first cliffs with the cliffs on your left. Keep driving on the road for about 2km until it makes a turn to the right and then left in an open v shape. Continue on and before it goes down to the right you can see the cliffs on the mountain on your left. Park opposite of the cliffs where the road opens up and allows you to park on the side without blocking the road or disrupting the farmland. It's a bit of a scramble down the slope and up the other side to reach them. Be aware of dislodging loose rocks. There is an easier approach from the top but it's private ground and we don’t want to bother them since the cliffs are in their land.
