/ Northern Morocco Info??0
I'll be taking ropes, full rack etc. and keen to get out to play. so anyone who's based in Morocco and available to climb or coming out and looking for a partner for some VS-HVS / F5-6b+ routes drop me a line.
had a look at some of the stuff around Chefchaouen when i was over there last time a couple of years back, some nice looking easyish bolted routes (possibly 2 pitch) just outside of town
could be worth giving my mate Sean over at Morocco trek and cycle a shout (find them on FB). think they have scouted out several new areas (certainly know they did for mountain biking)
Cheers Silo and Lost1977 - I'll check-in with Sean at Morocco Trek and Cycle - where are they based?
been in contact with Shaun and sent him quite a general message due to the amount of interest in Morocco on UKc, his reply was
" I will sort some good places for your friends. Can you send detailed info of thier likes etc. Obviously thr high atlas and sahara are favourites in the winter. Depends on if they want sunshine or snow. There are excellent remote berber villages i can reccomend for ya. Let us know pal."
so if anyone wants help just drop me an email and i can forward it to Shaun, Basically he's a nice guy who i met years ago (on a hotel rooftop in Marrakesh) from the UK whos moved there and runs a trekking and cycle company but doesn't mind sharing information
