The Atlas mountains stretch across Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia, reaching their highest peaks in the High Atlas range of Morocco. In terms of mountaineering they are at a stage of development and exploration comparable to that of the European Alps 100 years ago. There are countless unclimbed snow gullies, rarely traversed ridges and largely unexplored areas, just waiting to be discovered.
This guide provides single and multi-day winter walks, climbs and scrambles over 40 selected peaks, all no less than 3000m, so that routes from right across the range are covered. These provide a huge variety of scenery and terrain for walkers, climbers and scramblers.
With daily flights to Marrakech from Europe, access to this remarkable range is becoming increasingly easy. The High Atlas mountains of Morocco offer a wealth of mountaineering potential and exploration to those willing to embrace the challenge and adventure.
