a prop de Tagdiycht, Souss-Massa (Morocco)

At the beginning, you can save some time and skip the. Or utopia path I followed. Near the end of the paved road, there’s a building 4 or 5 stories with square and triangular markings on white trim - just after, a dust trail veers right. Take it.

From the hiking description on SummitPost, I followed the cairns along the path I’ve marked here and up the “rock ramp” described on SummitPost. The ramp curls around the peak and leads to several grade I (UIAA) scrambles, well marked with cairns. However, there seems to be an easier way up - instead of the rock ramp, continue upward in a vegetated gully until the saddle, then simply turn left and you’re there.

From the summit, I tried to descend what I thought was the vegetated gully I described above - I took, however, a different gully. But everything is traversable around there, so I just made my way back to the correct place.

Two paths: left on a slope, or right in the gully. I went right.

First cairn I had seen since nearly the summit. The vegetation in the middle of the photo is roughly the way I took down to there.

Going up, I would probably have rather taken the route through this vegetated gully. Picture taken right at where I turned off for the “rock ramp”

    Hello my friend, its look so cool and you inspired me to hike this summit. i just want to ask you if there is a camping place in that village Tagdicht and also if there is good places where you can set up the tent ? Thank you

    Good - it’s a beautiful hike!

    In the village of Tagdicht I’m not sure if there are any good spots for camping... it’s very uneven and idk what the locals would like you being too close. There is a cafe and “auberge” near the end of the road that offers a room with mattress and blankets for 50 MAD.

    Otherwise, you could maybe find a place to camp after hiking for 30-60 minutes. There is a very nice cave that herders use about 90 minutes into the hike (look on the SummitPost website for details on how to find it)

    He fet aquesta ruta  veure detalls

    I completed this route in December 2019. The weather was good but there was a bit of snow near the peak. Cloud cover hindered visibility for final ascent. Physically the route is not difficult but it's relatively technical for the final section (you need to use your hands to ascend with some significant drops). There are many routes along the trail - so I just stuck to this one religiously and it was good.

    I got a taxi from Tafraoute to Tagdicht at 8AM - it would have been better to get it at 7AM so I could have been climbing during the sunrise. I was done by 3pm and there is a guy who shuttles back and forth from Tafraoute for 30 Dirhams. I was the only one climbing that day and it was a spectacular hike.

Si vols, pots o aquesta ruta.
