Hi dmiki! Thanks for that - yeh that blog is run by a good mate of mine Des. I didn't put the link up as it doesn't give forecasts, however, it does another job of telling us what has fallen in the area. I'll stick in the page, thanks again. Matt

There are very little informations on the web about the transportation in the south side of Central High Atlas, even google maps are very confusing (home people had no idea about towns on the map) so this is what we found out at the place:
To get there you can first go to Agouim (bus or grand taxi). From Agouim you can either hire a terrain car directly to Lac d'Ifni (mere expensive) ore drive by grand taxi to Tidili.
Grand taxis cannot go further. From there on locals drive on terrain cars (quite frequently) so you can get a lift to a village below Ifni - Mezguemnat. There is a hostel there.
New road is being built in the area, however it will probably be too steep in parts for grand taxis.

I believe that this is the Western High Atlas, not the Central.

Hi, it is the Central High Atlas area. The Western High Atlas are the group of mountains stretching (roughly) west of the tizi-n-Test pass towards agadir. The heart of the Western High Atlas is the Tichka Plateau, with notable and remote peaks in the area.

I thought that the Central High Atlas was the area around M'Goun?

I've visited only once so I'm far away from being an expert on Moroccan mountains, but here is a link with extensive info, including descriptions of the Western, Central and Eastern High Atlas. I found several similar descriptions. Are you saying this is wrong?

Mind you, I also found one reference (Mountaineering in the Moroccan High Atlas, by Des Clark) that does indeed say that the area west of Tizi N'Test is sometimes called the Western High Atlas - but I did not read anywhere that the area around Toubkal was the Central High Atlas.
