Did this trip with Exodus- fantastic experience. Hotel Gomassin in Marrakesh was excellent- large comfortable rooms- friendly and helpful staff. Our guide, Hassan, was great. The climb is pretty tough going- Toubkal is the highest peak in North Africa- 13600 feet- and the last section does involve crossing a few ice fields which was...interesting, but the view from the top...

We made a winter ascent from the CAF refuge. Snow all the way but hot sunshine on the way back down. The clear skies gave us great views toward Mali and the Sahara.

A long haul but very do-able. In the snow make sure you have crampons and ice axe, especially needed for the traverse at the start of the climb from Les Mouflons refuge.

Challenging, cold, difficult to stay standing at times because of the extreme winds. I had lost all my energy climbing down and fell behind.

It's the top of the Atlas mountains, so everyone has to go up. The refuge area is a bit of a tip, rubbish and poorly dug latrines all over the place. The refuge it's self is OK, but busy. Showers and toilets. Getting to the top of the highest in the range is a great thrill, and if clear the... More

quite a slog up in the ice and snow of February, and also quite a long descent as the sun softens the snow and you shed layers. Fantastic views over the peaks and ranges of distant hills, greta walk!

I did a ski tour in the high atlas mountains recently. It was amazing. Lots of snow. We had good weather conditions foe ski touring. We skied over all the 4000m peaks including mount toubkal. It's really a great thing to do in morocco in winter time. You have to be welll equipped, and get a local guide.

Its a lovely area, start early in the morning to have sunset, could be many people, groups going same time so you have to walk slowly. Not tecnical clim but can feel the altitude. Great view of the Atlas on the top behind the Sahara, steep down so walk slowly or very fast easy to slide fall, break a leg.... More

It is easy to do it from Imlil without a guide, just follow the trail and if you don't know which way to go- ask the locals. Did it in January and there was lots of snow, crampons is needed. Slept in a tent at base camp for free. more info: http://altitude-adventure.blogspot.dk/p/mount-toubkal.html
