AzumerJebel el Kest, MOROCCO
Climbs 10 – Rocktype Quartzite – Altitude 1397m a.s.l – Faces N
Low lying and quick drying despite facing north. The routes are nicely sustained at their grades and on superb rock. Descents are easy scrambles again on good rock. An ideal place for a short day or when weather threatens.
There is a triangular face some 30 metres high giving access to the central main face which is also easily reached by walking round either side. Other routes on the upper cliff are further left and Raz’s Rocket is the fine pinnacle some 50 metres left of the base of the crag.
Climbs at this crag
Leave the Afantinzar road at the high junction signposted Aouguenz. Drive for 4 km and you reach a flat plain area. The crag is on your left and is easily located via a large sign on a rocky plinth right by the road with “Azumer” painted on it. 5-10 minutes flat walk brings you to the foot of the crag.
