SO WHAT'S IT

ALL ABOUT?

Lying on the southern fringe of the High Atlas is one of Morocco’s premier climbing destinations - the magnificent Todra gorge. Here under year round sunshine, you will find a climbing experience like few others, an enticing blend of sport, adventure and cutlure. 

 

Climbing has been going on here since the late sixties and it’s easy to see why with it’s superb variety of climbing from single pitch roadside sports routes to long multi pitch adventures! All of this lies just yards from the roadside in one fo the most spectacular limestone gorges of Morocco’s Atlas mountain range.

This is more than a sports climbing trip it will feel more like an adventure to a remote and exciting destination in Africa.

The aim is very simply guided by you, but we will explore as much of the climbing areas as we can. The broad plan will be to search out the best routes, the sunshine, and soak up some of that laid back North  African atmosphere. 

The season is over our winter, so in Feb / March it is still warm in the sun, which there is lots of. However as the the sun drops out of sight the temperatures plummet and it can get pretty chilly at night, so flip flops and a warm jacket are needed! With all these trips the weather is the determining factor and may allow us to follow a broad plan or force us to to change. It’s always an adventure, but the key factors are that we stay safe, enjoy the week and cover as much rock as we can. I prefer to keep the plan very open to allow us to make decisions compatible to the conditions on the crag.

 

This is suited for those looking to being guided and develop their climbing skills. It could be that this is all fairly new to you and you just want to go climbing outdoors in a warm climate. Are you’re keen to work up to leading your own routes and need that extra confidence and skill to help you achieve this? Maybe that next grade doesn't feel within your grasp and you need help to reach it? This is all about helping you towards these…..
