Mt Toubkal Winter Climb

A great week of two contrasts

5
A great week with the contrast of the hussle and bussle of Marrakech and the mountain vistas of the High Atlas Mountains. We had a fantastic group to enjoy the week with. There was less snow than is typical at this time of year (snow only above ~3700m) however there was still enough to require crampons and ice axes on the two summit days.

Well & truly worth the views

Loved my week in Morocco & up in the Atlas Mountains. Hassan, our guide, was exceptional. It was hard work & you definitely need to be fairly fit. But for all those days walking up & down, the views were worth it, especially in winter.

Something very different in Morocco!

3.5 days of trekking in the high Atlas and a wonderful tour in Marrakech. Day one is just a hike to the refuge (simple), then in the afternoon we opted to practice our crampon and ice axing. A long day, but not terribly physically challenging. The second day was Toubkal and was a little more physically challenging as it's an early start and the altitude starts to kick in. Also, some of the ways to get down from the summit were a little difficult to manage. The third day was the most difficult from a technical perspective. Not quite as physically challenging as Toubkal, but lots of crampons, ice axes and harrowing climbs/descents. The final day is a walk back to your departure point for Marrakech. The tour of Marrakech was amazing and I learned more than I've ever known about Islam and Islamic history. Totally fascinating!

It's not as hard as your mind tells you....

For me, this was one of those times where I had little in the way of understanding of what I was letting myself in for, yeah, it's rated as a 7 out of 10 (tough), can't be that hard right? Easy, I can make it. Actually I did 'make it', don't get me wrong this is a physically challenging 'holiday', I found the altitude the hardest part. Even though I found it tough it was hugely rewarding and I would absolutely recommend this trip.
