Summit success in Morocco

This week I have been working in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco and was joined by Barry, Richard, Allan and Al as well as fellow instructor and friend Paul. We based ourselves at a mountain hut at 3200m and over the week enjoyed 100% summit success on four 4000m summits including Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa. We had a very sociable week as the Llanberis MRT were also in the hut for the week, as was friend and guide Twid Turner with a client along for a week of ice climbing.
We enjoyed some ice cragging on a rest day in the middle of the week just 200m from the hut and of course the obligitory night out in Marakech last night! I am off to Chamonix now for a week of early season skiing.
