All year




Visit some of the best climbing spots in Morocco! Join me on a 5-day excursion to explore the alpine ridges of the High Atlas Mountains and enjoy an extended technical adventure!

The High Atlas are an incredible mountain range that run through central Morocco. The old rocks here are great for climbing, and offer different challenges on each ridge. From scrambling to multi-pitch, you will find an exciting route that will test your skills as a climber!

My program is a technical climber´s dream – I can design a program that will increase your efficiency and prepare you to take on mountains and climbs all over the world. Whether you want to take on a big route, reach higher peaks, or just improve all around, I have a course for you!

Our first day will take us from Marrakech into the range, and we will leave early enough to get us to the mountain refuge for the night. You will settle in at 3,200 meters and cover about 10km in distance.

The next three days will include routes and courses catered to your needs and skills. We can climb Toubkal West at over 4,000m, we can traverse Ras Timesguida, and we can take on the Clochetons (3,963m). The options are endless, and we can make sure you have the time of your life.

Most of the routes in the program are fairly difficult to difficult, so prior climbing experience is paramount. You should be in good physical shape, and you should have the mental fortitude for challenging climbs.

I can extend the trip an extra day, or I can shorten it. My top notch coaching ability was made for this, so I would be more than happy to walk you through the program that you need.

Book this NOW and enjoy the better part of a week climbing the remarkable High Atlas on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Morocco!

If you´d like, I can take you to the Anti-Atlas for some multi-pitch climbing. Or I can show you a program in the Tazaghart Plateau!

Mountain Leader

I hold the Mountaineering Instructor Certificate (MIC) and I'm a keen summer and winter climber. Originally from California, I lived in Morocco for ten years, most recently in the High Atlas mountain village of Imlil, and I'm currently based in the UK. I come alive in the mountains and love my role as a climbing and mountaineering instructor and seeing people equipped for their own adventures.

I am very pleased with Explore-Share! This was my first international climb, and the communication and response time were great. Herbie is a very skilled guide and very efficient. The entire booking process & payment was smooth. I will definitely use Explore-Share again. Thank you.



I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
