How Difficult is it to climb Toubkal

How difficult is it to climb Mount Toubkal?

Climbing Mount Toubkal can be challenging, but it is considered a relatively easy climb compared to other high-altitude peaks. The mountain has an elevation of 4,167 metres (13,671 feet) and is the highest peak in North Africa.

The difficulty of climbing Mount Toubkal depends on factors such as your fitness level, altitude tolerance, and previous hiking or climbing experience. The climb involves steep ascents and descents, and the altitude can cause altitude sickness, which can be potentially dangerous.

However, with proper preparation, such as acclimatisation, physical conditioning, and the right equipment, most people with average fitness levels and some hiking experience can successfully climb Mount Toubkal. 

From before his teens John's main interest has always been adventurous expeditions. At the age of 12, he eventually concluded a long campaign to persuade his mother to allow him to cycle the 30km round trip each day to school and back. After school John joined the British Army but wasn't particularly convinced by the merits of Brits killing Serbs, so left by the age of 21 and has committed himself to diverse expeditions ever since.

The results obtained by using the calculator below should not be regarded as authoritative as this is not an objective means of measurement. The algorithms are simply based on a reasonably accurate correlation between known the performance of athletes on the beep test and their otherwise-measured pre-known VO2 max data. It is however, a very useful tool in our view, and renders a very acceptably accurate approximation of VO2 max.

The vast majority of our climbers have loved ones back home who are concerned about their safety and happiness while away in Africa. For family and friends of a climber it can be worrying to imagine them struggling against altitude, the elements, and objective risks associated with climbing a mountain, and to have no information or updates about how they are faring. It is with these concerns in mind that we have developed a system of live-time reporting - complete with photos - sent directly from the mountain.
