    Early this morning we make our attempt on the summit of Jebel Toubkal the highest peak in Northern Africa. Our route takes us up the south cirque, crossing the stream above the refuge and then heading across one of the mountain's numerous scree fields, where we will have to negotiate a seemingly endless carpet of boulders and rocks. Cresting the ridgeline we find ourselves on the plateau, from where it is a short walk to the summit and the vistas out across the surrounding landscape are quite breathtaking.
