A new easy multipitch route for beginners, to learn climbing on multipitch routes "equipped" but also allowing the introduction to climbing "Trad", since all relays can be common.
This route is located on the beautiful north ridge on the left at the exit of the gorges.
This route is 12 lengths for approximately 550m which makes it the longest of the gorges.
Its maximum difficulty is 5.10a / A0 (1 step) mandatory 5.9
Difficulties are : L1: 5.10a / A0 - L2: 5.8 - L3: 5.7 - L4: 5.9 - L5 5.9 - L6 - 5.9 - L7: 5.8 - L8, L9, L10, L11, L12: 5.6 max.
The number of quickdraws max. is 11 in the first lenght.
Small reminder: A0 mean, that if you do not have the level for announced difficulty, protection is put so that you can pull the quickdraw for to pass.

The descent is possible by the right small gorge by walk and three abseilling it takes a "small hour" , otherwise walk along the ridge right up to the collar of the nomads.

This multipitch route has been bolted since below by "Aventures Verticales Maroc" with Julio Soares, Catherine Rey and Abdul Fadili
The equipment and re-equipment financed with the sale of climbing topos of "Vertical Aventures verticales Maroc", thank you to think about and to disseminate this information, it is important for all practitioners, hosts and restaurateurs.


Just left above the craft shops, coming out of the gorge towards Tamtatouch
No approach, you are at bottom of the itinerary.


Very well bolted.
