My first 4000m peak in a foreign land, this expedition came about on the back on being barred from LFTO. With a bit of planning and some hard graft anybody can accomplish their dreams of standing on top of North Africa’s highest moutatin.
I walked this national trail over 7 days with my fiancee. We walked east to west and had a brilliant laugh along the way. Top marks for effort must go to Leanne who managed the trail despite having no experience of thru-hiking.
Hiked over 4 days, this ofter overlooked trail turned into one of the best hikes to date. Done in true FC style, local pub owners were more than happy to see us wander into their establishments.
