Watch Valley of the Giants, Bouldering in Oman

In February 2015, Philippe Ribière and Dan Bates visited Oman-based Canadian climber Read Macadam in the Sultanate of Oman.

With word of a treasure trove of massive potential for bouldering first ascents, they explored a remote canyon high in the Hajar Mountains on the eastern most part of Arabia. What they discovered is world class.

Get transported back to another era – an ancient village settlement nestled in a valley full of giant freestanding boulders, and join them as they climb first ascents in the home of a traditional Arabic people from another time. For more, see here.
