Ascent Trip Report

To and from Les Mouflons refuge having arrived the previous day via the Aguelzim Pass. Great weather with the forecast winds not materialising. Latish start meant that the crowds we found at the top when we first arrived disappeared and we then had the summit to ourselves for an hour whilst we sunbathed and looked at the views. Because we were only returning to the refuge there was no particular time pressure to get down. The following day we descended to Aroumd on a blisteringly hot day stopping to re-hydrate at Sidi Chamharouch.
