Recreational Climbing in Wadi Rum dates back to around 1984, when european climbers were invited and started opening routes in the area. Over the years, there are too many to mention, but a few parties stand out for making the bulk of the First Accents:

  • Tony Howard, Di Taylor and Party
  • Claude & Eve Remy
  • Haupulter & Precht
  • Wilfred Collona

In 1987, Tony and Di Published the first guide book; Walks, Treks and Climbs in Wadi Rum, Jordan, which was later revised in 1994, 1997, 2007, 2010 and 2014. It stands as the most useful / essential guidebook for Wadi Rum and surrounds, detailing hundreds of routes and descents with topos, descriptions and maps.
