Comments: Some beta that was useful to me:

after the terrace of the several choices, a longish leftward-trending rampy thing heads up and left towards some clean grey-white bongo flakes. The goal is to reach these, which are probably 350' above and to the left of the terrace. Above this runs a system which should get you to the top; a couple fixed pins will reassure you that the system has in fact been climbed before.

Awesome summit, too!

Comments: Does it say more about the country, or about the visitors, that every time the talk turns to Morocco the topic quickly turns to hustlers and how to avoid them?

I think, Paul, that staying in that nice hotel in Tafraoute and getting around in your rent-a-car might exempt you from a lot of the situations that generate all this talk. Folks who try and tour the entire country on the cheap could have a different view. I won't presume to say whose is more correct. Three sentences on the charm of t... more >>

Comments: It actually sucks, Nick. Wet, dirty, loose, all that stuff. The whole 'Art' fetish is just a big conspiracy of sandbaggers trying to get other people to live the horror that they suffered through.

Comments: This route's reputation for loose rock is a bit behind the times. You can find it, but the only time I felt like there was loose stuff of consequence was when we were dragging our bags across the bottom of the Cyclops' Eye with a party 1500' below. The adventuresome feel comes more from the wandering line and frequent switching between free and aid climbing amidst the vast architecture of the North America feature. And from the detritus of 40+ years of ascents- there's some funky old stuff up... more >>

Comments: It doesn't have to be 'fun', to be fun, right?

What was truly not that great was watching Mama Bear introducing her cub to the joy of pack-raiding at the base as we sorted helplessly through our tangled rap lines. Probably best to hang your gear a few pieces up on the off chance you've ever kept food in there.

Comments: Consider climbing the North Buttress (using George's excellent description!) to familiarize yourself with the Kat Walk descent if you're at all uncertain of your ability to complete this route in daylight- that one goes a lot faster. With climbers above, I wouldn't hang out at the base of Middle Rock in the evening if you paid me...that sh#t is loose!
