Nat and Kat are wondering if they should stop for directions somewhere, but there doesn't seem to be anywhere to stop unless they want to ask the shoulder of the highway. Gary, meanwhile, is certain that they "made a fatal mistake by coming to the north side." Mallory insists that's what the map said, but she doesn't know what to do now. Well, way to go, then.
Jill has finished her "rapple" and is happy to be back on solid ground. Chad finds a lamp with a ring in it almost as soon as she shows up behind him. He swaps the ring for a clue and scampers off, while Jill is still searching. I wasn't sure how they were going to reunite with their teammates up top after finding the ring, but I think they run up a more indirect footpath back to the peak, which is at least a little more challenging than just getting winched back up or something. They open their next clue sending them to a landmark in the town of Nizwa, namely a "giant stack of books." Which just sounds like a big, unfurnished, outdoor library, so it would more accurately be described as a stack of giant books, forming a short, blunt pyramid in the center of a roadway roundabout. And, unfortunately, reminding me of nothing more than the crap that passed for landmarks in the family edition, which is probably not what they intended to do. Still, that's where their next clue is. Chad and Stephanie get in their car to be driven back down the mountain, hoping to hold onto their lead. Hey, why not take a little snooze in the back seat during the ride?
But Jill finds her ring in short order, and she and Thomas head back to their car just as Nick and Vicki are arriving. See what I mean about the decision not to follow Gary and Mallory? Vicki reads their clue, trying to keep it away from a hungry goat which eats some other piece of paper right out of her hand instead. Nick isn't down with heights, so Vicki's doing this one. "I'm really honestly not scared of anything but bugs," Vicki interviews. Well, we know she doesn't fear verbal abuse.
Going down, Jill and Thomas pass Team QVC's vehicle, which honks as they pass. Must be a safety thing on these mountain roads. Claire offers to do this Road Block, much to Brook's surprise. Hey, as long as she doesn't have to ascend back up, she'll be fine.
