You want to live the Moroccan experience to its maximum? Pair both of our trip for a truly memorable one!

This trip takes you into the exoticism of Morocco and allow you to discover mountains and culture. Like always, we wanted to take you outside of the beaten tracks by offering you an unique itinerary that we are alone to offer! We will realize our traverse following an itinerary of 7 summits located between 3152m and 4167m. For most of the itinerary, we will be off the trails use by the rest of the people, that means we are going to be alone. even if this is non-technical some passage are quite exposed and require the use of the hands. The trip ends with the ascent of mount Toubkal, the highest peak in Morocco.

 

The summits

  • Oukaimeden – 3262m
  • Tazegzaout n’Louah – 3769m
  • Aksoual – 3912m
  • Biiguinnoussene – 4002m

Moroccan Atlas is considered as the most beautiful place to rock climb in Africa and is in the top 10 place worldwide to visit for rock climbing. We will have the chance to spend 13 days to climb in this paradise still not really known by North-American climbers. We will adapt our objectives depending on the team’s level, the number of participants and the level of autonomy of everyone. Of course, like in every trip we offer, more you are autonomous, the most you will get from this experience. Our trip philosophy is to offer you a great logistic, technical and moral support as well as a lot of coaching but not doing everything for you. This way, you can push your limit to their maximum in this challenging terrain.

We also decided to do one day of developing the area by installing and/or correcting some routes. Some routes of intermediates difficulties needs protections replacement or could be improve. A nice way to learn, but also to give back to a community that lives of climbing tourism and are not able to do these kind of things.

One goal in mind; benefits of this paradise to it’s maximum. We will sleep in cottage every nights.
