majklaccrampons on Toubkal  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2011
There is snow in south cwm. We climbed without crampons but there were a few places where I would recommend to use them.

Jakevia North Cwm route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 24, 2011


Hiked after the heavy snowfall from the Mouflon Toubkal refuge. 7h in deep snow but much more interesting than the standard route and no one spotted until the summit. Standard route is very crowded, good for the descent...

Date Climbed: Dec 10, 2010


Climbed twice - on the evening of the same day as we came from Imlil and on the following morning. Sunset views are outstanding. From Imlil 2 hour to the hut if you are fit, from the hut 2 hours if you are really fit. No reason in that case to sleep in the hut, better to go back to Imlil. Snow line from 2800, crampons are essential, ski poles - good idea

We really needed our crampons that day, there was quite a bit of ice near Nelter hut. Higher up, it was mostly snow.

ncstToubkal circuit and summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 10, 2010


Did the 'Toubkal circuit': Walked Imlil-Tacchedirt-Azib Likemt-Amsouzert-Azib N'ouassif (past lac d'Ifni)-Refuge du Mouflon-Toubkal summit on the sixth day. We camped at the Azibs, no village there, took food with us. Long days, but a beautiful trek, varied landscapes. No snow on the passes, sunny days the whole time. No one else on the trail except for Berber shepherds. Crowds at the Toubkal refuges. Summited Toubkal quite windy easy climb, then down to Armed. No guides needed, great trekking!

twsNormal route, Ikhibi Sud  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 24, 2009


Started from Imlil the first day and climbed up to Neltner hut, snow appeared at 2000 metres. Hut was very busy, almost entirely full of people. Very cold night in the hut, about 10 degrees Celsius seems quite chilly when you haven't acclimatized for sleeping over 3000 metres. After we had enough of pretending to be sleeping, we started the climb at 4 am. Quiet, but very cold climb, amazing sky full of stars though. Had to use crampons all the way. Reached the summit some half an hour after sunrise, first ones on that day. Just after the sunrise some clouds started to appear, so we didn't get any rewarding views from the top.

matterhorn221st 4000er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 13, 2009
Left the Neltner Refuge with my dad and guide at 6:00 am we reached the col just as the sun came over the lip so did the bulk of the climbing in the shade. Good hard snow on the way up. First group to the top (a basque group arrived part before and part after us)reaching it at about 9/9:30 am. Perfect weather conditions. The way down was fun glissading most of the way but the snow was still icy so it was very fast, though was more difficult for me to ice-axe arrest as I had my arm in plaster at the time, but great fun, back down to Neltner by 11:30 am after an hour on the summit and back to Aremd by 4:30 pm after a leisurely lunch and stroll down. Hugely enjoyable end to a hugely enjoyable week trekking in the High Atlas.

Second time atop of Toubkal. It was very different from my previous (June 2007) climb because lot of snow and icy at morning time, so all need use crampons.
Start at 7:00, summit at 11:00.

ivyonupMay Day Ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 1, 2009


We got to Imlil around 2am and were still able to secure a hotel for the night. The "huts" at the base of the mountain were the most "luxurious" I have stayed in thus far while climbing/hiking. We left for the summit around 5:40am, which turned out to be a wise choice because the snow was perfectly solid for the crampons on the ascent, and the melted snow was perfect for glissading on the descent.

Date Climbed: May 1, 2009


Group of four reached the summit in perfect, no wind, weather. For those trying to budget this trip: 1) You don't need a guide. 2) You only need snacks as virtually everything can be made available to you at the Toubkal refuge, you may want to bring your own lunch and breakfast though as its kind of a rip off. and 3) Contrary to all my beliefs prior to this trip you don't need an Ice axe if your doing the normal rout (unless there is a ton of snow). If you have sturdy ankles then crampons should be enough, perhaps trekking pols too, which would prove to be much more valuable in the long run. We rented our gear from Cafe Soleil at a rate of 40dh Ice axe/per day and 30dh crampons/per day. At the refuge we stayed at the Les Mouflons, lodging was 80dh a night, a small breakfast and lunch for 40dh each, dinner for 70dh, shower for 10dh, and a blanket for 20dh each.
