For the last fifteen years, expatriate climbers have been developing cliffs in the United Arab Emirates and North-West Oman. None of the climbing has previously been documented in print. Though easily accessible by 1-3 hours driving from the ultra-modern Gulf cities - Abu Dhabi and Dubai - the cliffs are located in unique and remote desert and mountain terrain. The climbing styles encompass: single-pitch and multi-pitch trade climbing, with grade from Diff to E5; sport climbing, with grades from 40 to 8a; and, bouldering, with grades from V0 to V8. The guide has detailed descriptions for around 600 routes at twenty of the most significant areas. It also shows locations for several other areas, for which archive material is maintained on the book's website. The book also describes climbing on the pristine Musandam coast of Oman, which has over 100km of sea cliffs above warm coral seas, inaccessible by road. Climbing in a DWS style has become popular on this coast. The book explains the logistics of boat travel on the coast as well as the DWS locations. Though the guide is aimed primarily at local climbers it should catalyse more visits by travelling climbers.

The mid-winter climate, around 20[degrees]C with almost no rainfall, is amongst the most attractive in the northern hemisphere. The book has a specific section addressing issues for visitors.
