Climbing in the Moroccan Anti-Atlas PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Climbing in the Moroccan Anti-Atlas free pdf "Climbing in the Anti-Atlas" offers routes on crags on the south side of Jebel el Kest, 120km south-east of Agadir and close to the oasis town of Tafroute. Here the superb rock conditions on the pink quartzite rock of Jebel provide excellent rock climbing of up to 500 metres in height in all grades. This guide gives comprehensive coverage of approximately 25 crags, mostly unexplored by any climber. However, it is not a place for the novice. Many of the crags are complex, and route finding can be difficult. Descents occasionally involve abseils and down-climbing in exposed situations. The weather is rarely inclement and, even when it is, it is unlikely to involve electrical storms.

About Claude Davies

Claude Davies was born in Taxal, Derbyshire, and started climbing in 1952. Since then he has continued to climb extensively in the UK, particularly his local crags close to where he lives with his wife, Betty, in New Mills, Derbyshire, while also visiting and climbing in other parts of the world. Upon retirement from his position as partner in a firm of consulting structural and civil engineers in 1994, Claude has been able to indulge his desire to climb and has made repeated trips to Morocco to explore opportunities in the Anti-Atlas. He is a member of the Alpine Club and a former vice president of the Climbers Club. Claude has retained his membership of the Cromlech Club which he joined very soon after he began climbing. When not climbing, he spends his time playing golf and fishing for salmon.
