Taghia's big walls continue to attract attention. This time it's due to the Swiss climbers Denis Burdet, Nicolas Zampetti and Jacques Vouilloz, who last August climbed nine routes in Morocco's High Atlas mountain range.

One of these was the second repeat of "Sul filo della notte", the route first climbed in October 2003 by Rolando Larcher, Michele Paissan and Maurizio Oviglia. Denis Burdet climbed the 570m on-sight, seconding a series of pitches though not the crux 7c+. It is the obligatory 7b grade which, according to first repeaters Arnaud Petit and Fred Gentet, makes it the hardest route in the area.

"The place is world-class, everything worked smoothly just as they should do when you have a great day" Burdet recounts. He is best known for his first on-sight of Divine Providence on Grand Pilier d'Angle on Monte Blanc, and he has "an unforgettable memory of the place thanks to this route which resembles a series of Ceuse single pitches, one on top of the other."
