/ Morocco Ice and Mixed
I'm thinking of heading out to Morocco with a friend for 10 days after Christmas. I was just wondering if anyone is able to provide any info about approaches and routes.
Is there a guide book or a website with info on the routes that have been done out there?
We are both quite experienced in Scotland up to VI occasionally VII but have no skiing experience. Is it necessary to approach any of the areas on ski?
Also any info on the best areas to go would be much appreciated.
Many thanks for your time
Hi Lester, the best I've ever found has been the Desnivel Guide for the toubkal region, though it's in Spanish... http://www.libreriadesnivel.com/libros/toubkal/9788498291414/
Hope it helps and please let me know how you guys get on.
