Climbed in August, 115 degrees in Imlil, very hot on the first day. Great views from summit.
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 :)
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!
Up and down... summit to village was a slog though!
A fun climb in good snow conditions
very ncie hike around the surrounding area as well.
From Imlil to the french hut. Next day to the top and back to Imlil.
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!
