High Atlas Trek – part 4 Ascent of Jebel Toubkal

Summit day involved a 5am start for walking as we needed to climb the 1000m to the summit at 4167m and return to the hut before it became very hot about 1pm and before the weather changed for the worse as it did most afternoons.

We set out walking by headtorch
