We will leave Jeddah Thursday after work . (You may camp – nothing is provided. BYO everything: food/tent/ etc , or get yourself a hotel room) . Alternatively, you can leave Jeddah VERY VERY early Friday morning for a 6:00 AM Start in Jabal Shadah.
Hikers should be able to do part of each days’ course. It will be non-guided, but we expect no one to go missing in action.
