Outclimb the Goats

October 3rd, 2009 by · No Comments · Africa, Morocco

For this particular climb you go under the phone cables on the way up, but you lower down over the cables for clean rope management. Meanwhile the busses and tourists line up behind you for some blatant showmanship.

Gratuitous as that is, most of the Todra Gorge’s crags are further upstream and much more peaceful, some climbing right out of the river-side gardens as local women harvest their crops. The goats will beat you up any climb, but they prefer a much more precarious route over the scree fields that seem foolish to me.
