New Routing in the Anti-Atlas
Despite sustained development over the last twenty years, the quartzite mountains of the Moroccan Anti-Atlas continue to provide exciting new-routing opportunities for competent climbing teams, with lots of unclimbed lines from short single-pitch buttresses right through to long full-day adventures. For the most part the rock here is surprisingly solid and the climbing highly rewarding, but an often friendly appearance can mask the inherent seriousness of new-routing in what is essentially a remote region. All parties considering attempting unclimbed faces here need to adopt a cautious approach and be capable of effecting a self-rescue if required - there are usually no other people around, and no mountain rescue exists to extract you should the worst happen. So... climb within your capabilities, and take care out there!
