In climbing I do things that I enjoy and want to do not the ones that are currently in fashion.

American's New Route in Oman


Brittany Griffith, Zoe Hart, John Dickey and Jonathan Thesenga, all from the United States, put up Cracker Pterodactyl 5000 (VI 5.10+) on the south face of Jebel Misht 2090m (Western Hajar).  The route was established onsight without the use of any pitons or bolts.  This has been the accepted style for most of the development on the wall.  The line follows a series of cracks, corners and ramps up the 900m wall.  It took the team one and a half days to complete the route, bivying once at a large ledge about two-thirds up the wall.  After topping out the second day around 1pm, the team descended the 1500m north face. Once back on the ground, the team scored a ride and avoided the 25km trek back to camp. The American's reported that the numerous ramp and corner systems of the 6km wide face have significant potential for new lines.  Most would likely go free in the 5.10-5.11 (6b-6c) range.
