Here is a quick Toubkal Winter Conditions update:

I was out instructing on an introduction to rock climbing course at Oukaimeden for Climb Morocco on Saturday and took some photos of the High Atlas for those of you wanting an idea of the current snow cover. Photos were taken at 2,600m.

 

Summary of current winter conditions

The snowline and cover has been retreating over the last couple of weeks and the remaining snow pack has become very firm. I will be heading out into the mountains later this week and will give a full Toubkal Winter Conditions update at the weekend! Hopefully the weather forecast calling for snow will follow through!
