Topic - Toubkal in March advice

Bib_Bob_Euroslap - on 27 Jan 2014
So I've booked on to a guided trip to climb Toubkal in March this year, and I'm just after a bit of general advice really to ensure I'm properly prepared. I've done plenty of summer hill walking, but this will be the first time I've done anything like this in snow/winter.

Any advice as to what clothes to wear, what sort of layering system do people normally use?

I know I will need crampons and I will most likely rent these locally, I've been told these will be Salewa walking crampons. my current boots are Asolo Flame GTX's but I wonder if these will be ok with crampons?

And finally, any recommendations for fitness training for this kind of thing? Actual hillwalking may be difficult due to time and living in the south east but I'm planning a weekend or two before going away.

Thanks in advance!
