Walou Bass

First ascent: Aymeric Clouet, Enzo Oddo, Arnaud Petit, 04/2011
By: Planetmountain
Area: Morocco, Group: High Atlas, Peak: Taghia Gorge, Country: Morocco

In April 2011 a small French team comprised of Arnaud Petit, Aymeric Clouet and young Enzo Oddo travelled to the Taghia Gorge in Morocco where they created Walou Bass, a 150m climb with difficulties up to 8c.
The trio climbed the first pitch established in 2010 by Jerome Para and Damien Tomasi, then forged upwards to establish a further three exciting and demanding pitches. The Frenchmen climbed ground-up and the crux 8c pitch, with its tough Fb8a boulder section, still awaits a free ascent, as does the final pitch. Walou Bass translates from Berbère into "there is no problem".
