Oukaimeden is a small village in the High Atlas Mountains (2700m.) of Morocco, located just 90 minutes’ drive from Marrakech.
Located in the High Atlas Mountains, Oukaimeden provides a unique and picturesque setting for learning to rock climb. Just a little over an hour from Marrakech, Oukaimeden is a great option for climbing in the summer in cooler altitudes when it is scorching in Marrakech. Although this is a great summer climbing spot, be advised that the rock spend a good part of the year surrounded by snow, as Oukaimeden is also the site of Morocco’s ski resort. This means there are days where Oukaimeden is not climbable, although there are many winter days where the climbing is fantastic as the rock is sun facing and warm and makes for memorable and picturesque climbing surrounded by snowcapped mountains.
