The Wadi Rum Expedition

The Wadi Rum, located in Jordan near the lost city of Petra, is a vast, silent landscape of sandstone mountains and cliff faces towering over ancient riverbeds and sandy desert.

The Wadi Rum Expedition showcases the culture of the area and the experience of four climbers—Heidi Wirtz, Chris Kalous, Ben Firth and Aaron Black—on a new 1,200-foot free climb up one of the Wadi Rum's tallest walls.
