Exploring beautiful Rams canyon.

There's no obvious path to reach the canyon entry.
Start you hike along wadi bed, keeping to the right and start gaining altitude, going up the ledges of the cliff. Keep looking for the best/safe crack to climb the final part of the cliff in order to reach first plateau (this part can be exposed and dangerous).
From there it's steady hike up, generally aim for cols between the peaks. Once you reached the highest col, you should be overlooking green settlement with obvious entrance to the canyon being on you left . Go down the hill and then to the left and you will reach canyon with it's first abseil anchor.
There are 8 abseils, with highest being 58m
Two 60 meters ropes are sufficient.
All rigging was in good condition.
