Description

I invite you to give your first steps in ice climbing in the Atlas.

Toukbal Range is one of the best places for the practice of ice climbing. If you want to improve your skills, this course of ice climbing in the Atlas is for you!

The Atlas has options for all tastes: from easy paths to more complex routes with watercourses.

Besides, there is a wide range of difficulty grades: from Scottish III to V, including continental mixed routes. And If you are looking for a combined expedition, the Atlas also offers mountaineering trips on Grade I and II ground. 

During this introductory course of ice climbing in the Altlas, I will teach you:

  • How to move your body in an ice climb
  • How to use crampons and piolet
  • How to put the ice anchors and screws

You will also have the chance of living your first ice climb with the help of a mountain guide! Here I leave an estimate itinerary:

DAY 1

Starting point in Marrakech. We will be taken to Imlil, our trail-head. From there, we will walk to the hut at 3.200 meters of height.

DAY 2

Our first contact with ice climbing will be in a pitch near the hut. There, I will explain you the basics and let’s get started.

DAY 3

You’ll put into practice all you learned, in an great place of the Atlas.

DAY 4

Another intense day of ice climbing. By the end of the day, you will practice an ice climb by yourself in one or two routes.

DAY 5

We will hike from Toukbal Hut to Imlil, where a transfer will take us back to Marrakech.

You can also ask for private courses. Any item can be change according to your needs! If you’d like to be part of this course of ice climbing in the Atlas, contact me right now.
