A guide to winter walking, climbing, scrambling right across the Moroccan High Atlas from Taroudant in the south-west to Midelt in the north-east, all accessible from Marrakech. The book outlines 50 routes on 40 peaks all over 3000m, including Jbel Toubkal in the central area, Ighil Mgoun in the east and Jbel Tinergwet in the west. Routes are suitable for experienced winter walkers, and are graded for remoteness, navigational difficulty and commitment. The High Atlas Mountains of Morocco have mountaineering potential galore. With 7 peaks over 4000m, and myriad other remote, little-climbed and poorly mapped summits, the region offers countless challenges for experienced winter climbers and scramblers looking for adventure. All of the routes are illustrated with colour sketch maps and photo-diagrams and also included are a basic English-Berber glossary and full information about the mountain refuges.
