It really needs about eight hours, moving pretty fast, it will  take two days for it and sleep on the summit this is a great experience and a wonderful introduction to Wadi Rum.  On the third day we will use robes, to climb down to sunset campsite, dinner and overnight.

Day 9: Active day we will climb Jebel Barrah East Face, Ocean Slabs : a popular climb, on the cliff opposite to Merlin's Wand at the northern entrance to the Barrah Canyon. The climb presents no particular difficulties, but the situation is impressive and is very exposed. There are three variants (Le Truand, La Brute and Le Bon) which, as their names suggest, are considerably more difficult (maximum of grade 6B for the first two, 6A for the third). We stay tonight at Um Sabata Climb site. We will habe Bedouin BBQ with the Bedouins
