Yes, camels are useful.
When putting a new repeater on top of Mt St Catherine in the Sinai, around 1995, we planned for the use of helicopter. Then one of the local techs came up with the idea....
So, instead of a 10,000 $ heli-lift, it was a 600 $ camel trip.
Mast sections on one, repeater station on another, and then the solar power station. Backpacks on and start walking. Great trip if you start early, like 4 am.
And yes, LC-80 up to the foot. The steps & paths were too steep and narrow though.
