We came across these unusual rock formations on a visit to Oman in 2013. The object of our trip was to prove some new routes for the second edition of Mike Nott’s “Adventure Routes: UAE and Oman” (which is due to be published this week).
At first we thought they might be fossils, but you will see by the last photo that they were massive – up to one metre across. A geologist has since told me that these are the result of small amounts of molten rock being pushed up to the surface. A force of nature indeed.
