First Descent – the UAE’s first Rope Swing

In June 2015 the Traks Pro team convened in the rugged mountains in the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). With my climbing skills and the rope access team’s rigging skills we set to work equipping the region’s first and highest rope swing and zip line – both anchor points stretched 120m high, across the winding canyon road!

I won first descent. Standing over the void, with an audience of distinguished on-lookers there was only one option. Commit and enjoy the ride!
