The French Pillar

The French Pillar is the "Nose" of Arabia. It is world famous and a big tick for many climbers. A curving line that separates the two greatest faces of Jebel Misht, it was the target for a team of French guides led by Raymond Renaud in 1979. At that time, the French dominated climbing developments in the Sahara and the Middle East. The route was climbed over a three-week period with extensive use of fixed ropes and camps.
Sean will guide you on this route in 2 days. The winter months are perfect for an ascent to start one day, sleep on the 1000m wall, continue the next day and then descend the rear side. Sean has guided this route many times and you will have an unforgettable experience.
The hardest pitches are given F6b+ (E3 5c), around 65m and not bolted.
