Elite climbers Stefan Glowacz from Germany and American Chris Sharma have scaled the overhanging roof of the Majilis al Jinn cave in Oman for the first time ever.
The cave lies in the eastern part of the al Hajar Mountains in Oman. It is the second largest cave cavern in the world.
The climbers reached it from above through three collapsed craters. The only way to get inside the cave is by abseiling 160 meters down. There are no ground-level entrances.
Both Glowacz and Sharma made it from the bottom of the Majlis al Jinn Cave back to the Earth’s surface, much to the bewilderment of the locals.
