Ice climbing with a donkey

Des in Imlil

Chatting to Des Clark in Imlil whilst loading the donkey with our ice climbing gear for the 5 hour trek up to the Toubkal Refuges. Des is a UIMLA, lives in Morocco and has a wealth of knowledge about the Atlas mountains and its people.

His book “Mountaineering in the Morrocan High Atlas”, is a very useful guide, published by Cicerone. We weren’t climbing with Des but he is a mate of Twid’s, was very helpful and freely shared his local knowledge and contacts. He runs a trekking business called Nomadic Morocco

KragRags is a family run business dedicated to making ethically produced clothes for climbers. When we’re not out climbing, we’re busy creating comfortable, high quality, eco-friendly clothing, from 100% organic cotton, using green renewable energy, ethical Fair Wear employment and ecologically friendly farming and manufacturing practices.
