Location and Approach
Afella lies directly to the west of the Toubkal mountain huts (Nelter and Mouflons). It is a large mountain with complex faces on all sides. The majority of winter lines are found on the imposing south face, which is accessed in approximately 1 hr from the hut by way of a narrow ravine that leads onto the valley separating Akioud and Afella.
The east face (rising directly above the huts) offers several ice climbs in spectacular positions, such as the ice curtain of _Curtain Call_ and the deep ice chimeny that passes through a cave tunnel feature.
