The "Arête nord" area is a very beautiful ridge on the left of the exit of the gorges.
The limestone is very good and stable if you stay on the right side. It's reasonably what to do because the left side overlook the tourist road, sometimes crowded of tourists.
Three routes are possible, fully equipped, equipped with old (very few bolts), but also possibility to "trad" of course!
The degrees of difficulties are from 5.5 to 5.10a (2 steps)
This itinerary was equipped by Julio Soares of "Aventures verticales Maroc", mainly for the beginners before going on other magnificent routes in the Todra gorges.

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

All routes are on the new guidebook "Escalade dans les gorges du Todgha" in French and English. Edited by "Aventures verticales des gorges du Todgha"
The price is 250 dh (about 28$)
You can too find the guideook in digital version to download

At the shop of "Aventures Verticales des gorges du Todgha" at Tizgui the last village, only 400m before the entrance at the gorges.
