Ascent Trip ReportWalked/ scrambled along ridge from road barrier at 1300m- Jebel Jais Mountain road is still under construction. New 3 lane tarmac road up to this point from east side of RAK town. The turn off from the No. 18 is signposted near the Saqr Hospital. Guards to Sheik's residence on top were friendly but we kept clear of the enclosing fence; they apparently ( limited English) had no sense that they were near the UAE high point. Trig-like pillars marked the Oman border which we were careful not to cross- hence we did not ascend Jebel Jais only the UAE HP.
