Welcome to a selection of climbing related links for the UAE. I have added a few of the most relevant links where you can find topo information, crag guides and location maps, climbing gear/suppliers and other climbing resources.

Also head over to my forum for a wealth of information and most of the local climbers who would be more than glad to dish out some advice. Have a read over the find a friend section for climbing partners or the crag info section for details about specific climbing areas.


Toby Foord-Kelcey - Toby’s personal site with Google Maps to most crags, topos and links to other guides and websites. - Martin’s well kept and dedicated blog to climbing adventures around the UAE and beyond. Posted on by a few select climbers with many guides, links, advice and discussions.

Global Climbing - A company based in the UAE supplying gear, guides, and a lot of general info as well as climbing advice for the UAE.

Dynamic Climbers - There’s a new company I have recently discovered in Dubai and they operate climbing trips, outdoor adventure stuff and expeditions as well as installing artificial climbing structures.

Indoor Climbing - There isn’t a great deal of indoor climbing in the UAE. There is one indoor wall at the Wafi gym, where a fair number of climbers regularly meet up on monday nights and tuesday nights. Even if you can’t make it on those days there are usually climbers there throughout the week and there are some instructors to give tuition, but I do not recommend it. Most climbers there will give you free tips and pointers if you ask nicely. Alternatively, go to the forum and see if anyone wants to go there on an alternate night.

Email me if you would like your climbing related link advertised here and i will be more than glad to help.
