Please refrain from climbing outside

Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.

At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.

We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

Honker (E2 5b) on the Upper West Walls at Tifghelt © Steve Broadbent

Crag features

This is the large, complex cliff just before the Tifghelt col and on the south side of the road. It has a distinctive striped appearance in some light conditions. There is a large mossy looking gully/fault in the centre of the cliff and a distinctive slanting crack to its right. Fine quality and varied routes, mainly single pitch but with a few multi-pitch outings up the main face.
