Di Taylor

Di Taylor and Tony Howard have been climbing and trekking in the mountains of North Africa and the Middle East for well over 30 years. They were responsible for the discovery in 1984 of the Wadi Rum in south Jordan as a climbing and trekking area. Since then they have returned to Jordan every year, always managing to find some time to explore other parts of the country between world famous sites of antiquity such as Petra, Pella, Ajlun and Kerak. They were also invited to document the superlative routes to be found in Jordan’s recently formed Nature Reserves, in particular the mountains and canyons of Dana and Mujib and once again in their favorite desert area of Wadi Rum which was declared a National Park in 1998 – a status they had long fought for, in support of the local Bedouin people.
