Jabal Umm Fruth Rock Bridge is one of several natural arches in the Wadi Rum area of Jordan. It has a spectacular drop on both sides and is a popular destination for energetic tourists visiting the area with a jeep tour. It requires a short (~5 minute) scramble to reach the top. Unfortunately, there is some graffiti—names and slogans—carved into the soft rock by thoughtless visitors. Despite this, it is well worth visiting if in the Wadi Rum area.
