Climbing in the Moroccan Anti Atlas

Continue Shopping or View Cart

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.
