About an hour below the summit we we reach a wide open pass for our first views of the south. We then turn north for a climb up the ridge to the summit plateau. Reaching the summit (4167m) provides a great sense of achievement and we are rewarded with breathtaking views. We descend by the same route and should be back to the refuge in time for a late lunch and relaxing after the hard peace. Approx 6 hrs walk

  • > Day 8 - Toubkal Refuge –Marrakech
  • Today you will have our last foray into the snowy heights around us. Most likely you’ll head up above Neltner to the tight gorge of the Tizi Ouanoums Pass. Whilst not a peak, the pass offers the opportunity to look down the southern side of the mountain to the glacial Lac D’Ifni, shimmy ring emerald green below. You return to Neltner for lunch, before descending back down the valley to Imlil for our last day, and then our transport will transfer you back to Marrakech by the evening.
