Meeting point :

This canyon is considered as difficult due to the technicality of the drops as well as the foot work required.

The ascent is a bit tricky, specially at the first bit of it. You can start from left side of Sherri village start point and its bit hard to climb to top and all the way is amazing with awesome views and rocks. The rest of the ascent's quite easy to moderate.

The Canyon:

This canyon named as Goat trail and discovered and prepared for rappelling by Team Mountaineering Pirates.

The way going up is amazing and unique. once cross Golden valley, can reach to Grave yard top of mountain. After that no more climb and follow the path and start going down to reach rappelling stations.

Fist drop : 35 meters with two balconies
Second drop : 33 meters with one balcony and 2m overhang part.
Third drop : 12 meter drop

And we hope to make two rappelling stations in future.

Leaving the canyon back to the parking point.

There are some big boulders and you will need to find your way around them (not easy but manageable). once you reach down to the wadi naqab start point, the rest is quite an easy walk to the parking.

Note: the walking between the drops is a bit tricky and you will need to do some good scrambling to reach to the abseil point. Again, all manageable with good level of fitness.

Ensure to take no less than 6 liters of water and.

Since drops are small its enough to take one 70m rope or two 40m and rescue rope.

I recommend to take a drill and bits just to be prepared for any situation.
In future there will be two rappelling stations in 2nd point. We are not satisfied with existing one in left side. It will be best if we can put one in right side as well.

Time to finish: depending on the size of the group, but it can be from 6 to 12 hours.
