This is a fantastic Mount Toubkal winter climb which is also a great learning experience for winter skills. Climb up the highest peak in North Africa and in Morocco in winter months.
Our Toubkal winter climb itinerary:
On day one, we pick you up and transfer directly south toward the Atlas mountain peaks. In Imlil you can stay in a local lodge. After lunch, we go for a short walk round the town and pick up any rental gear that you may need. 1h30 drive + 2h walk.
On day 2, after breakfast we trek up the valley to a small shrine called Sidi Chamharouch. From here, we wind further up the Isougouane valley to the Toubkal Refuge at the foot of the main west face of Toubkal and surrounded by a cirque of peaks. It will take around 5 to 6h walk. Overnight
The next day, after an early breakfast we walk up the valley towards Ras n’Ouanoukrim peak 4068m. This summit is Toubkal’s neighbour and the second highest peak in the Atlas Mountains. First, we climb the remainder of the Isougouane valley, perhaps up to the narrow but impressive col of Tizi n’Ouagane pass, with views out and down to the next valley. sleeping back at the refuge for a second night. around 6h walk.
On day 4, it is the Toubkal summit day. We traverse and ascend the south facing cwm over mixed ground of snow, ice and rock, through various undulations and bowls. Eventually we emerge out into the sunlight at the col of Tizi n Toubkal at 3940m. From here, we move up along the SW ridge and a little higher up get a spectacular view of the SE face of Toubkal and the black triangle of the summit. We will enjoy amazing views from this great summit. Walk back down to the refuge via the same route. Lunch in the refuge & overnight. around 6 to 7h walk.
The last day, after breakfast we walk back down to Imlil valley via the same route. Then, we stop for lunch in imlil before transfer back to Marrakech. 4 to 5h walk + 1h30 drive to Marrakech.
