I love a chal­lenge so when I was asked if I would like to be one of the first peo­ple to climb the newly opened Via Fer­rata on Je­bal Jais, Ras Al Khaimah’s high­est point, I was in. Launch­ing my­self from one moun­tain­side to an­other was scary but I loved ev­ery minute of it. Not for the faint-hearted at 120m high, with a 300m-long zip wire, it’s tough and chal­leng­ing. Read my full ex­pe­ri­ence in next week’s Fri­day. Mark Setch­field, art ed­i­tor
