Mount Catherine Climbing Notes

Greg Harris from CANADA writes:

The climb to the summit of Mount Katherine is a relatively straight-forward hike up a well trodden camel path. The hike can be accomplished (up and down) in a single long day. No special equipment is necessary. Trekking poles are not required but might assist. Very near the summit there is a small refuge if one needs to spend the night in some shelter. There is a toilet right at the summit (standard squat toilet -- bring your own toilet paper). There is also a cooking shelter near the summit where meals can be prepared out of the wind and elements. Even though Mount Katherine is in the Sinai Desert, be prepared with a tent (unless you're going to stay in the one room refuge) and some warmer clothing. At the summit it can get quite windy and cold once the sun goes down.
