Adrar Umlil

Climbs 78 – Rocktype Quartzite – Altitude 1812m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
A big, multi-pitch crag on the northeast side of the Jebel el Kest massif, comprising of 5 independent towers. Approach is a stiff 1 hour hike from Amzkhssan, but the climbing is worth it when you get there... rather like a bigger and better version of Gimmer!

About 40 routes recorded so far, but there's lots more to go at here, particularly in the upper grades.
