We have just completed our first winter ascent of jebel Toubkal 4187mts the highest mountain in North Africa. With record levels of snow fall on the High Atlas this year we had perfect winter conditions.
An early start the following morning saw us start our final ascent of Toubkal, there had been heavy snow over night and it was knee deep at times so the going was pretty tuff, but everyone made good time and finally summited after 4hrs and were rewarded with breath taking views over the High Atlas.
We then descended back down to base camp for a much needed lunched and finally back down to Imlil exhausted but very happy.
