An incredible 5-day guided ice climbing in the perfect big ice of High Atlas. A personalized trip with the help of a certified guide every 2 people.

Atlas

5 Days

Jan - Mar, Oct - Dec


Description

High Atlas is a sub-range of the Moroccan Atlas. Its highest point is Mount Toubkal at 4.167 meters. And that’s where I want to invite you.

This region of High Atlas is snow-capped most time of the year due to its altitude. That’s why High Atlas is the perfect area for the practice of ice climbing.

During this 5-day ice climbing trip in High Atlas you will discover the amazing secrets of the frozen walls surrounding Toubkal Hut. Their ice pitches can reach up to 600 meters of height and they will remind you to the Alps.

Besides, I will get you out on some of the bigger ice and mixed lines around the Toubkal hut. If you want we can also build in some shorter days on the quality cascade climbing in the area.

Here you can see an estimate itinerary of the trip but you have to know that any item can be changed.

DAY 1

A private transport will take us from Marrakech to Imlil. From there, we will start the hike for 5-6 hours up to Toubkal Hut at 3.200 meters.

DAY 2

It will be an acclimatization day around one of the Toubkal trails. You will learn all the tips you’ll need to the next ice climbing days.

DAY 3

Let’s practice some ice climbing techniques in Ras or Akioud, western lines of Mount Toubkal.

DAY 4

Today we’ll keep ice climbing in another ice route of the Toubkal.

DAY 5

Last day to descend to Imlil during 4 hours. Then a transfer will take us back to Marrakech.

Although the ice lines in High Atlas are easy-intermediate, you have to have previous experience to this kind of activity. Besides, it is ideal for those who prefer personalized trips because the guide radio is maximum 2 people per guide.

I know you want to come with me to this amazing ice climbing trip in High Atlas. So, contact me now and book you place. If you have any other doubt please tell me! It will be a honor for me to be your guide.

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.
