Re Morocco
spider28
I walked in Morocco and the Atlas mountains some years ago.
I didn't go to Toubkal but did visit various other places.
One piece of advice. Be prepared for the heat and UV. And in particular be vigilant about food. The party of 14 I was in ALL had serious bums and tums problems requiring visits to doctors for some time.
Do not eat anything washed in local water. Peel anything yourself, with your hands or tools you have sterilised. Eat cooked food but watch out for how the plates/ cups were washed.
Bring energy bars and your own food so you have a choice.
Respect people's choices about photographing them.

Have a great trip.

Buckaun East: Cliffy north edge.

This is a picture of Buckaun East taken from the valley below.. Obviously the safest way to go up and down this is to the left or south of the ridge.

Summit Summary
Buckaun East: Bump at the end of Buckaun ridge.

This summit is almost an Arderin and almost a Carn. It makes a handy extra stop on the fringes of Maumtrasna, a place notoriously devoid of relief.

Tievecrom: Ring of Hills

Coming down off Slieve Gullion (Culann's Mtn) you get this lovely framed view of Forkhill sandwiched between Croslieve and Tievecrom. It's easy to understand how a village might pop up in such a n...
