Morocco, Anti-Atlas, Spring 2024

18 March - 27 March

The Anti- Atlas is an excellent trad climbing and walking area for exploring – peaks over 7000ft just north of the Sahara. Travel there is straight forward with flights from Manchester to Agadir followed by a 2.5hr drive. So far Derek, Mick, Roy and Nigel have booked flights and accomodation. There are still 4 rooms available at the Tizourgane Kasbah (view on Booking.com), an old fortress overlooking the mountains – a fantastic location. There are also flights still available (as at July 18th 2023. Depending on where you want to go its better to hire a 4 wheel drive hire car although I have managed with a standard hire car on a previous visit. It’s more practical to get together in small teams (i.e – a car load) for walking or climbing.  We have a trad climbing guide if you want to take a look, but get in touch if you want to know more. There is a walking guide by Cicerone – David Wood. There is also a print to order walking guide by Don Sargeant (https://www.moroccorock.com) The exact location of the Kashbah can be found on Booking.com and in the guidebooks. Get in touch if you want to know more.
