   ITINERARY

 

No previous experience needed, just a reasonable level of fitness and a head for heights!

All training is provided prior to the trip with x3 two-hour training sessions. The training usually comes as 2 sessions in one day then the last session on the morning we leave. Training covers the use of the safety equipment. Use of ascenders and techniques, passing a re- belay on descent and ascent, change overs from ascenders to descenders.

The techniques learned in this trip are used worldwide in caving and rope access.

We leave the climbing Wall around lunch time for a 3-hour journey for Selma Plateau.  That night we camp at the entrance of the cave. At day break the next day we make our descent.

The trip starts with a 120-meter free hanging abseil. Once the huge descent is made we explore the bottom which is all lit up from holes in the roof over 100m above us.

There is a tunnel we pass through at around 80m long, big enough to easily walk through, dark so head lamps are needed. No tight squeezes. At the end of this we abseil 25m to the base of the first pitch where we start our ascent.

We exit via 2 separate pitches, the first & longest being 40 meters, and the second around 30m.

Ascent is made using a technique called frogging, using a chest ascender and hand ascender with leg loop. This is ALL based on technique and does not require you to be strong upper body.

We usually finish mid-afternoon and then make our journey back to Muscat.

A 4×4 is needed to access this location.
