Details

Climbing in the Anti-Atlas offers routes on crags on the south side of Jebel el Kest, 120km south-east of Agadir and close to the oasis town of Tafroute. Here the superb rock conditions on the pink quartzite rock of Jebel provide excellent rock climbing of up to 500 metres in height in all grades. This guide gives comprehensive coverage of approximately 25 crags, mostly unexplored by any climber.

 

However, it is not a place for the novice. Many of the crags are complex, and route finding can be difficult. Descents occasionally involve abseils and down-climbing in exposed situations. The weather is rarely inclement and, even when it is, it is unlikely to involve electrical storms.

 

  • Seasons
    All months except May to October when temperatures are too hot to contemplate climbing and walking; November and December are the “wet season”.
  • Centres
    Access is through Agadir, the climbing is based from the pleasant town of Tafroute.
  • Difficulty
    These routes are remote and long trad climbs in a wild environment. Many of the climbs are mid-grade. But there is no rescue so be prepared and equipped properly.
  • Must See
    Massive walls of barely climbed rock!
