This is a fairly quick ascent of Jebel Toubkal with the summit climb on day 2 of the 3D/2N trek. The ascent is a challenging walk rather than a climb, and anyone in good physical condition can get to the summit. Toubkal is, however, subject to an extreme climate. It is rugged, rocky and famous for its long, steep and zig zag slopes of scree (small stones). Expect strong wind and what seems like an endless steep slope of scree with snow covered grounds at some parts of the summit climb. The descend is equally steep and challenging, if not more, after the body is worn out by the climb to the summit.
