The Moroccan Anti-Atlas guidebook describes the traditional rock climbing to be found on the south side of the Jebel el Kest massif and around the town of Tafraoute. The guidebook describes the first routes developed in the Anti-Atlas Mountains, which are primarily multi-pitch traditional routes (up to 500m long), accompanied by a sense of adventure. This guidebook complements the other Anti-Atlas guidebook (North), which describes the northern side of this area.
This comprehensive guidebook describes 33 crags and details more than 150 routes, mainly in the lower to mid-grade range. The main areas covered are in the Ameln valley. The climbing is concentrated in the Ameln Valley that is situated between Tafraoute and the Jebel el Kest massif.
At the start of each area there is a detailed approach description. All the routes are illustrated on full colour photo-topos with English traditional grades used throughout. Where appropriate detail information regarding descents is also given. At the start of the guidebook there is a comprehensive introduction to rock climbing in the Anti-Atlas Mountains, providing information about when to go, best time to climb, where to stay, the local culture and the history of the climbing.
