Climbed the South Cwm after a couple of days in Imlil waiting for a break in the weather. After less than 2 hours I passed a group of Spaniards who expected me to break trail in the fresh snow all the way to the top. No way Jose!
Excellent snow conditions underfoot. Quite windy but a fantastic summit view.
A very fine ascent on good ice.
Climbed Toubkal in October with a group doing one week "Toubkal The Hard Way". Started from the Refuge du Toubkal just before 06:00 via the Normal Route / Ikhibi Sud first to Toubkal-West where we arrived around 09:30. Took some photo's and continued to Toubkal where we arrived about one hour later. Took a pause and some photo's and descended via Ikhibi Nord in about 03:45.
Nice day, good weather.
Arrived at refuge after one day but due to gastro issues with some of the party we decided to turn back the next day instead of trying for the summit. Will need to come back!
There is snow in south cwm. We climbed without crampons but there were a few places where I would recommend to use them.
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...
Climbed with Dad and other friends. Great weather.
Once again on the summit ... this time with Unai my youngest boy (7). Great weather.
Expedition to take 14 young people from Uk up, great trek but heat and food, took most of the group out, 5 summited, great day for them!
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.
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!
A lot of snow that season, but beatiful and very easy climb
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.
in wintertime. For my climbing mate this was the first summit over 2.500 m-s. He wants to return as well :o)
A nice mountain. Climbed in two days, from Imlil to the Neltner Hut and then to the summit.
Not a technically difficult mountain, but it's a long climb. Recommend doing it in three (+) days!
Very beautiful Mountain!!!
Nice and fun climb in the winter.
