Under: Adventure report
Well I've returned safely from 2 weeks in the Moroccan Anti Atlas mountains.
Our team of 4 spent nearly every day climbing extreme routes hundreds of meters long in the African heat. We even had the opportunity to climb new routes on virgin rock, the reward, a new 5 pitch VS 5a in Ice Box Canyon.
The rock was good, the people were lovely and the climbing outstanding. All in all an excellent trip!
Give it another year and it might be the sort of place that I could be taking clients to. The only down sides - its a pretty adventurous place to be and there's no mountain rescue to pick up the pieces when it all goes wrong. This is defiantly not the place to be unless you know what you're doing, or with someone who does...
