MOROCCO WINTER

MOUNTAINEERING

winter adventures in the high atlas mountains 

 "My experience of Paul is that he’s very much a safe pair of hands; someone who pays meticulous attention to detail, and who remains supportive and sensitive to the needs of the individual as well as the group. I’ve walked/climbed at altitude over many years but have never before experienced a group leader who has nailed down every issue concerning acclimatisation, hydration and necessary nutrition as well as Paul does. The trip was a resounding success and good friends made along the way. I’ll definitely be joining more of Paul’s trips..."

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS...

DO I NEED PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE?

Ideally you will have some basic winter walking experience behind you, however we will refresh all the required skills once we arrive. We will be affected by the effects of altitude during the week and whilst we’ll discuss how to manage this, walking in the mountains in winter can be quite physically tiring, so combined with the effects of altitude, it’s a fairly challenging environment. 

To give yourself the best opportunity to enjoy this week, prior fitness training in the hills and mountains is essential.

 

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED?

This trip is in a winter environment so, crampons, ice axes and plenty of warm clothing will be needed.

I will send you a detailed kit list when you confirm your place. 

 

WHERE DO WE MEET?

I don’t book your flights, rather once they are released I will confirm the flight I’m flying on and you book your own. Then we will meet centrally at the UK airport. If you wish to fly from another airport then you will need to ensure it arrives and departs in a similar timeframe to mine.
