Check out this bad boy!

As a family we generally like to take a rest day once a week (turn off computers and let go of work/admin and spend some quality time together)… My wife and I  look to get out in the beautiful area of Imlil in the High Atlas Mountains where we live. We feel quite privileged and thankful not to have to drive or travel a significant distance to get to a beautiful spot. We often go for walks… and this time I wanted to show Miriam an area I discovered a week ago. I had other motives too (that I was upfront about!) – to explore a boulder that looked to have some potential.

 

So, Sunday afternoon we headed out and about 30 minutes later I was cleaning holds, getting rid of bad rock and trying to link a couple of sections together to get a decent traverse problem for training… still a way to go to crack this one though! We enjoyed the afternoon out despite it being on the cold side… it is now properly winter here :-). There was a small dusting of snow on the higher mountains and hopefully we will get some more soon!

 

I can’t wait to get my bouldering pad out from the UK. I will be back there soon for a long weekend to finish off bringing out more equipment and I have booked an extra bag for the pad :-). Be on the look out for further bouldering developments in Imlil area!

 

 

View is from the South... you can see the start of the track (path in the river bed) to the Toubkal refuge.

Having a go at linking the potential traverse problem!
