Very easy -> you reach the base of climb per car : stop it in front of 'juju cottage' and walk along the road until the end before it turns a the right or the left.

Route Description


From there : take at your left the route and make the round from the small hill in front of you by the right side
Raeching the weak point between the hill and the jbel oukameiden, begin the climb following the rocks route in front of you ( direction E).
After it's easy, follow it until the top and join the lift.
From there you can desecnd with ski or snow-board, 2 ways :
