A short and pleasant climb on obvious line to Abu Meyleh tower, next to Jabal Rum massif. Salim is a unique way to its summit. As the route goes on the north side of the tower it is shaded most of the day. At winter it might be very cold and windy. From top the magnificent kind opens on Rum village and Um Ishrin east walls. It is close to Rest House, ease and well protected - therefore it is an excellent choice for the rest day.

Getting There

Approach is 15 minutes walk from the entrance to the Rum village. From the entrance camping, head north-west and enter the siq between Abu Meyleh and Jabel Rum.
