HI EVERYONE

I HAVE JUST STARTED CLIMBING FOR THE LAST FEW WEEKS, AND I HAVE ALREADY DONE 5 MUNROES AND YES INCLUDING THE BEN NEVIS WICH I HAVE DONE LAST WEEK (
)

IT S ALL STARTED WHEN I WENT TO SPITTAL OF GLENSHEE TO TAKE SOME WILD LIFE PHOTOS AND CAUGHT THE BUG AND NO RETURNING BACK, NOW I GO OUT EVERY WEEK (MID WEEK) AS I WORK IN THE WEEK END.

I AM DOING THE TOUBKAL MOUNTAIN (HIGHEST MOUNTAIN IN NORTH AFRIQUA) AND THE THIRD HIGHEST IN THE AFRIQUA, IT WILL TAKE 3 DAYS TO DO WITH STAYING IN 2 CAMPS TO ACCLIMATISE WITH THE ALTITTUDE,
I AM RAISING MONEY FOR A CHARITY (NAME WILL FOLLOW) AND AM CREATIG A WEBSITE WHERE ALL THE INFO AND THE UPDATE ON THE CLIMB, ( I CANT WAIT)

ANY ADVICE PLEASE FEEL FREE TO DROP A NOTE, AND AS I CLIMB ON MY OWN FEEL FREE TO JOINE ME (USUALLY MID WEEK)
I LIVE IN PERTH, AND I DONT MIND TRAVELLING FAR JUST FOR A CLIMB,

REGARDS AND GOOD CLIMBING
JALAL(JOE)

Hi Jalal and welcome,

By co-incidence I'm from near Perth and also heading for Morocco this Summer on a trek which finishes in the area around Toubkal. We hope to climb that and a couple of the other peaks in the area.
Good luck with your ascent.

All the best,

John
