Jebel Misht Oman: new route by Pavle Kozjek and Miskovic

30.01.2008 by Planetmountain

On Sunday 20.1.2008 Slovenian climbers Pavle Kozjek and Dejan Miskovic made the first ascent of Yel-la sadik on the south-east face of Jebel Misht (2090 m), Oman.

In late January Pavle Kozjek from Slovenia teamed up with Dejan Miskovic for a lightenig fast trip to Oman, during which the two carried out a first ascent on Jebel Misht. Their 1000m “Yel-la sadik” ((Hurry, my friend) was ascended in traditional style in just under 10 hours at VII-/VI. The route is described as being a logical line on perfect limestone, and slots in between two existing lines, Make love not war (Richter, Wünsche, T & P Kohbach,Fischer, 02/2003, F7b) and Shukran (Trenkwalder & Gargitter, 02/2006 VII).

After having discovered a line the day before, Kozjek and Miskovic set off later than planned and soloed the first 100m, then tied in to climb “excellent rock with holds even in most unexpected places.” Three long pitches (80 m rope) brought them to beneath the big roofs, where they traversed right to cross excellent brown limestone which led to a large ledge circa 250m from the summit. From here they soloed to the top, possibly following the logical exit to Empty Quarter (Ramsden-Eastwood, 2000). The two topped out in last daylight, descended through the night to the other side of the mountain and were spared part of the 25km hike to basecamp thanks to a friendly local who gave them a lift back.
