Seasons: Spring and autumn are the norm, with pleasant weather. Summer is for masochists who don’t need water; winter can be very cold and sometimes wet. Centres: Aqaba is closest. Amman is far to the north. No hotels in Rum; these are outside in the Aqaba and Petra areas. Campsite, plus villages of Rum, Rashdiya and Quweirah. Difficulty: Treks, camel and 4WD journeys, plus trad and sports climbs throughout the grade range. Must See: Rum is stunning with its enormous red cliffs and canyons - ''vast, echoing and godlike'' said TE Lawrence. Petra makes a rather brilliant rest day.
Wadi Rum is tucked away in the south of Jordan, close to the Red Sea port of Aqaba, remote and splendid in both landscape and culture, yet only a five-hour flight and a short onward journey from Europe.

The first edition of this guide, published in 1987, contained about 140 routes. Since then the number of climbs has doubled. Here are detailed descriptions and ''topos'' of all the known routes to date, from short walks, camel treks and 4WD journeys through to sports climbs and major ''big walls'' of the highest technical difficulty.

Additionally the author gives information on sites of antiquity, flora and fauna, and life with the Bedouin. It is their roguish humour and warm hospitality as much as the magnificence of these deserts and mountains that make a visit to Rum a unique experience. This book tells you everything you need to know.
