/ Jbel Toubkal at the end of March
I went early-mid March 2008 and was snow from about 3000m.
Up to the hut I didn't need crampons (frozen snow, Just walking poles) but did need them from the hut to the summit.
im not sure about the advice of no crampons needed when there is v steep snow?
ive been a couple of times to the atlas both mid march and have been up Toubkal and other mountains nearby.
I would take crampons and ice axe as there will be steep snow from the Toubkal hut to the summit. ive seen a few episodes of wlakers skating down without crampons trying to use thier walking poles to steady their slides!
We camped at Toubkal as hut can be chaos and overbooked. there is a great hit in the next valley and some cracking climbs there also.
