Mali - Africa
Desert, climbing and adventure.
Tuareg - everyone's heard of the magic of Timbuktu, the desert and the magnificent river Niger - this is Mali.
In the north eastern desert zone on the border of Burkina Faso rise basalt towers with the names like Korià, Gorè Gondè, and Grimarì in an incredible landscape.
Climbing these spires is fantastic and challenging given the chance sometimes to free climb in a totally isolated area - it is the ultimate in "adventurous territory".
Period: from December to January
Difficulty: climbing from 4th to 5th grade and some 6bh and more. A fascinating environment but one which is short of water and which we need the assistance of a local guide.
Duration: flexible from 10 to 15 or 20 days depending what you want to see.
Participants: 2, 4 or 6 for the climb.
A detailed program will be provided to those interested.
