Thanks to Uwe Kraus for adding this peak.
With passes over 3000 and a good dozen of over 4000 meter peaks "Idr·ren Dr·ren", so the name of the local Berber tribes, draw many enthusiastic climbers to the Atlas Mountains in North Africa. As an important base for tours in the Toubkal area serves the Neltner Hut (or Refuge du Toubkal) of the CAF Casablanca in the Mizane valley, situated at an altitude of more than 3200 meters. The best season for skiing the period from January to April is a possibility. We spent one week in March 2001 for skiing in Morocco and climbed on 20th of March this beautiful mountain.
From the summit of Ras N`Quanoukirim it was an easy walk of 30 minutes to reach this peak. After the descend with easy rock climbing we reached the pass and had a fantastic downhill run almost to the Neltner Hut, but the last few minutes we had to carry again our skis because of little snow fall this year.
