Previously only open to professional World Tour riders taking part in the Tour of Oman, the full route from the base of the Green Mountain is classified as an HC climb (hors categorie) with an average 10.2% gradient and is widely acknowledged as the best in the whole Middle East region.

It’s a mountain challenge accepted and won by the likes of Chris Froome – who won the stage on the Tour of Oman in 2013 and 2014 – though the pro racers only take on half the full climb.
