This updated 2nd edition of the popular Climb Tafraout guidebook describes more than 1900 climbs in the Anti-Atlas region, covering the best crags across all of the main climbing areas. As well as detailed colour-coded photo topos and pitch-by-pitch descriptions, the guide makes use of superb GeoGraphics 1:25k and 1:50k topographic maps, with QR codes for each crag, buttress and parking spot, making it easier than ever to find your chosen route.
Climbs range from single-pitch roadside crag routes to big multi-pitch adventures, the longest of which involves some 1500m and 35 pitches of climbing. Among them are some of the most incredible climbs in this fascinating country, all enjoying glorious Saharan sunshine, short approaches and dazzling mountain scenery. As well as all of the popular quartzite crags, the guide describes a selection of easily accessible routes on the granite tors around the town of Tafraout, including both traditional and bolt-protected climbs. A variety of bouldering circuits are also listed.
