Report of Maxim Shakirov about the blitz-ascent on Toubkal by a group of almost newcomers. PHOTOS


08/11/2017 11:16

Maxim Shakirov, guide of 7 summits Club:

The group called "Incognito" has successfully completed the blitz expedition in Morocco!)

3 of the 4 participants reached the highest point of the country, the Atlas mountains and North Africa - Toubkal (4 167 m).

The fourth member turned from a height of 3 600 meters.


Our blitz the day of the ascent:

4:20 - exit from shelter;

After an hour our group split: Andrey, Oxana and Victoria with a local guide, Mohammed go to the top, I'm Marina and continue climbing, but slowly...

7:20 in the morning, with 400 meters of altitude during 3 hours climing, we turn down, knowing that today, for the Marina (which is actually the first time in the mountains) it is a  top.

At 9:30 I go out from the shelter towards the summit, towards the brave three, worrying that they may need my help on the descent...

At 10:40, I meet the main group at 3 600 metres, the same height, where we turned with Marina...

My help is not needed - the team, though tired, but happy, are going down!)

The heroine of the day unquestionably was Victoria, which for the first time in the mountains ( Andrei and Oksana before that ascension was only the Olympus)!!!
