Illustrated with dazzling photographs of the mountains and also the mountain people, the Berbers. 48 routes including Jbel Toubkal, Tazekka and Igdat.

Seasons
If you can cope with snow climbs, winter into spring is a good time to visit; spring is the perfection, with blossom and life awakening, and as late as June alpine flowers will still be colouring high ground; by July the temperature is soaring and tends to stay so until the autumn equinox; autumn is harvest time, and storms are less likely, but you'll find a burnt-up landscape; November, December and January are the least good months
