An Overview of Tafraout bouldering

The granite landscape around the town of Tafraout has long been a popular destination with boulderers, though no real record exists of most of the problems. In many cases the course-grained granite is rather crumbly, and climbers are often put off before they've discovered just how fun the bouldering here can be. In recent years, a number of easy circuits have been painted around the village of Aguerd Oudad, which provide some excellent sport on rest days, half-days, or evenings. Some of the bouldering is easily walkable from Tafraout, but if you've got a car then all of it is within a few minutes of the road.

Details of the painted problems can be be found in the 2018 Tafraout Granite guidebook, which has boulder maps for 14 different easy to intermediate circuits in the area, including two children's circuits.
