Climbing Al-Khuribah

Clip: Season 2 Episode 6 | 5m 16s  | Video has closed captioning.

Steve and team climb the first two pinnacles of Al-Khuribah, the highest point of the ancient Dadan Kingdom. What lies at the top could hold the key to a 3000-year old mystery of why this ancient civilization disappeared. The rock is severely eroded, so expert climber Leo Houlding secures a route, and Steve and ropes expert Aldo Kane follow behind him.
