Latest Toubkal  Winter Conditions Report

 

I was out instructing on an intro to rock climbing course yesterday at Oukaimeden for Climb Morocco (for rock climbing trips in the Todra gorge and in the Marrakech region click here) and took a few photos to give an update on the current snow cover on Toubkal and the High Atlas!

 

What perfect weather we had yesterday: clear skies, crisp air, and cool temperatures… which is typical for the High Atlas in the spring!

Angour (3,616m) this peak offers some great mountaineering on the North Face!

As mentioned in my previous Toubkal Winter Conditions update I will give a full report at the end of March or beginning of April, as I will be heading up to the Toukbal refuge for a couple of days. See that post for an overall picture of the current winter conditions in the High Atlas here!
