We ask that you separate your equipment into two categories: essentials for your trek that should be kept with you at all times, including items like a waterproof jacket, trousers, spare fleece, camera, batteries, personal medications, sun cream, and the capacity to carry 3 litres of water.

We don't maintain official records of summit success, and the likelihood of ever releasing such statistics is very low. The reason behind this decision is the potential negative impact it could have on climbers and guides. Publishing success rates could create undue pressure on climbers and especially on guides, as they may feel compelled to prioritise summiting for marketing purposes. This pressure could compromise the safety and well-being of both climbers and guides. Unlike our unpublished summit statistics, which are available for verification through live climb reports for each trekking group over the past few years, we prioritise safety and accuracy over marketing considerations at Team Toubkal.
