NE-couloir solo in winter  Sucess!

Climbed the NE-couloir solo in winter. Did both summits, Ouanoukrim Timesguida (4.089 m) and Ouanoukrim Ras (4.083 m). Down by the E-ridge variant.

Normal route  Sucess!

Partly on skis. Left our skis at a gully on the east ridge and climbed the rest on foot. Skied down the gully back to the hut. A great tour.

Normal route  Sucess!

Hiked to the summit as part of a longer trip with KE Adventure. Spent a little under 3 hours from the refuge to the summit and 2 hours for the retur trip. The it was a long slog back to Imlil. Not a very challenging climb, just a few places with some simple scrambling, but excellent views of both high and low Atlas mountains.

Nicer than toubkal  Sucess!

Nice snow condition, a more fun climb than its big brother toubkal

Relatively easy climb but long day  Sucess!

Climbed both peaks in October with a group doing one week "Toubkal The Hard Way". Started from Refuge du Toubkal/Refuge Nelter around 06:00 and walked the Tizi Ougane Normal route to the southern peak (I think this Ras n'Ouanoukrim) where we were around 10:00, so four hours. Continued to the northern peak (half hour) and descended via Tizi Ougane back to Refuge Nelter where we arrived just after 12:00. The route was quite easy apart from about 100 meters just above Tizi Ougane where you have to climb some rocks or ascend/descend steep slopes with lose rocks.

After lunch continued the way down all the way to Imlil.

Nice goal in the area  Sucess!

Climbed with Rubén & M.Ángel over the NE colouir with very good snow conditions and good weather. Snow over all the gully till the top of Ras. Snow on the slopes towards Timesguida and till the very top. Descend over the normal route (east ridge) with the rocky scramble almost free of snow.

Much better than Toubkal  Sucess!

I climbed it the day after Toubkal, in the winter. It's a much more fun peak to climb with few easy mixed parts and a snow capped summit. Views from summit are also very nice. Recommended in winter, probably much more boring in summer

Done  Sucess!

Really Fun, white out, gatorade on the snow because, Garmin put us in the Mediterranean.

Route climbed : normal (Timesguida + Ras) Ouanoukrim  Sucess!

Sabrina and I climbed Ras Ouanoukrim 4083 and Timesguida Ouanoukrim 4088 with a french group.
We also climbed Biguenoussen 2 days after at the other side of the range (north). This peak is no more than 3985 m high therefore with no doubt not a 4000er

Second of four 4000 meter peaks  Sucess!

Summitted the day before Toubkal. It was a fun scramble to the top, and we didn't see any other climbers all day. Our group bagged four 4000 meter peaks in total.

Tizi Ougane Normal  Sucess!

We climbed this after Toubkal. With a short scramble it is a better peak to visit.

Storm over Ouanoukrim

Attempted with a friend on a two week trip to area. Climbed to the col at the head of the valley but turned back with the onset of dark clouds. We had just reached the Toubkal refuge when the heavens opened.

Route Climbed: Tizi Ougane Normal Date Climbed: 1st April 1999  Sucess!

I left our camp late in the morning solo meanwhile my friends climbed Toubkal. The tent had been pitched near Refuge Neltner. Soon I was on Tizi (col) Ougane waiting climbers to descend onto it. Then I walked alone many hours. I remember that I had lunch on the large slope to Timesguida n'Ouanoukrim. I reached that low snow covered summit (I think 1999 was a dry season there) and went back to Ras by crossing the Col 3,968 m. I climbed this beautiful peak and joined my friends again at camp in the evening.

Route Climbed: Tizi Ougane Normal Date Climbed: 27th March 1997  Sucess!

A friend of mine and me left our tent near Refuge Neltner late in the morning. Soon we joined another friend, who ascended with us Tizi (col) Ougane. Then he decided to descend but we both pushed forward meanwhile climbers descended. We also passed some skiers when we leaded alone on to the large roof to the forepeak. Soon we reached Ras n'Ouanoukrim, photos and back to Timesguida. There was a lot of soft snow with a cornice showed above NE face, more photos and descent on the same route than ascent. We reached camp late in the evening after a sunny day of mountaneering.
