Mountains of Morocco: Jebel Toukbal Summit

Five of our team reached the summit of North Africa’s and Morocco’s highest peak at about 9:00 am this morning. We started climbing at about 5:00 am and made a steady ascent. The wind picked up and dropped the temp well below freezing with the wind chill.

We stopped in at camp for lunch and then made the long descent back to the rest of our team. 1200 meters of gain and double that in descent. We got back to Ait Souka about 6:30 pm and the shower was delicious. Dinner is about to be as well. More pictures to follow once we’re back home as there is no way to liberate them from the camera. Congrats to all!
