Topic - Old Rope for Expedition Mules

L MoroccoGlen on 27 Jun 2014
Dear All,

Please allow me to draw to your attention a request for old climbing ropes for an animal welfare project in the Moroccan High Atlas.

Existing tethering practices used on the mules of the High Atlas cause severe rope burns. A leather sheathed bracelet using a doubled up loop of climbing rope has been developed to provide a solution to this awful problem.

All expedition groups heading out to Morocco are invited to bring out and donate their old climbing ropes to the project.

Further information is available from the following Facebook page:

https://www.facebook.com/KasbahMules

Ropes can be donated directly to the Kasbah du Toubkal or by contacting MoroccoGlen.

Thank you!!

A worthy cause indeed. Felt sorry for the mules when we were there last year. Thanks for the info.

Hiya. Tried to email you via this website but it doesn't seem to work. I have some rope I'd be delighted to donate for this use. However I'm unlikely to visit The High Atlas. Is there some way I could get it to you to transport? Cheers. Martin
