Review

The High Atlas mountains of Morocco have mountaineering potential galore. With 7 peaks over 4000m, and myriad other remote, little-climbed and poorly mapped summits, the region offers countless challenges for experienced winter climbers and scramblers looking for adventure.

This, the first English-language guide of its kind, outlines walks, climbs and scrambles on 40 peaks right aross the range from Taroudant in the south-west to Midelt in the north-west, all accessible from Marrakech.

- 50 routes on 40 peaks, all over 3000m, graded for remoteness, navigational difficulty and commitment

- illustrated with colour sketch maps and photo-diagrams

- with basic English-Berber glossary and information about mountain refuges
