Normal Route  Sucess!

Had some difficulties to find the beginning of the route in Imlil but after that it was really easy to follow the obvious path. I rented crampons from Imlil which I didn't need to use at all. Walking to the refuge was a bit boring but hiking from the refuge to the summit was quite enjoyable. Great views up there! The souvenir merchandisers can be a pain in the ass - one of them chased me about 300 m uphill trying to sell me a sun hat...

Normal route  Sucess!

Climbed in August, 115 degrees in Imlil, very hot on the first day. Great views from summit.

Normal, solo with one fuc*ed crampon  Sucess!

I rented crampons in Imlil for half price and one of them was still falling of my boot. Weather wasn't good but I didn't have money for waiting another day and paying rent of gloves and crampons so I just went there (to make my ego happy). Maybe it was good that at least I couldn't see how far down I could fall.
Next time in Morocco I'll wait for nice weather and go there to see something from the summit :)

normal route  Sucess!

I summited Toubkal in very good conditions. Nice Hike, a bit long to reach the Neltner Hut. Some snowfields above 3500 m but the track was fine and crampons useless. Nice view from the top.
I would suggest to climb it when there's a bit of snow up there. I had a GPS measurement slightly higher (4178m).

But you'll have trouble to avoid crowds on this peak!

Straight forward  Sucess!

Up and down... summit to village was a slog though!

South Cwm in winter  Sucess!

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!

A chilly climb  Sucess!

Excellent snow conditions underfoot. Quite windy but a fantastic summit view.

Route climbed: Normal Route / Ikhibi Sud, Toubkal-West, Toubkal, Ikhibi Nord down  Sucess!

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.

Turned back at Refuge

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!

crampons on Toubkal  Sucess!

There is snow in south cwm. We climbed without crampons but there were a few places where I would recommend to use them.

via North Cwm route  Sucess!

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...

Summer exped  Sucess!

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!

Normal Route  Sucess!

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

An alpine ascent  Sucess!

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