Location: Tizi-n-Fedhrat (2260 m)      by: Pedrotti Alberto
Area: Morocco      Date: 25-12-2010
There are two major roads which cross the Moroccan Atlas: the one of Tizi-n-Tichka and the one of Tizi-n-Test. But there is also a third, far more adventurous road, which joins Demnate on the Atlantic side to Ouarzazate on the Sahara side, crossing three successive passes well above 2000 metres: Tizi-n-Outfi, Tizi-n-Fedhrat and a third Tizi whose name I had not yed been able to locate on any source.
I was cycling under discontinuous rain, accompanied on the left side by a "moving" rainbow, when I reached the Atlas main watershed at Tizi-n-Fedhrat. Here, looking in the direction of the desert, I came to see again blue sky. But on the right side there was a high mountain which seemed not to want to come out of its clouds. Since I did not know its name (on the Michelin map it is appears as an anonymous point 3607), I christened it "the stormy mountain".
That day - it was December 25 - I did neither know nor suspect that I was going to climb that mountain from the other side, few days later, namely, on January 06. and I was also going to finally get to know its name: Inghamar, or Anghomar, or Anghoumar. Now on the Marco Polo map I even read Anrhomer.
I have been impressed so much by this unknown mountain, and by the beauty of the surrounding environment, that I have dedicated to it a summit log on Peakware, see http://www.peakware.com/peaks.html?pk=2483
It is also worth to note that the Inghamar is the highest summit between the Toubkal and Mgoun massifs which, as everybody knows, are the two Moroccan 4000s.

Comments

Inspiring as ever. Hamish Brown's book "The High Atlas" (Cicerone 2012) devotes several pages to Jbel Anghomer, as it is spelt there (with two more variants) and describes it as "enormous wreck of scree". Have you been at the tamda lake as well? Cheers, Martin

Yes, if you research the region with Google Earth, you will find that I have "populated" the region with images. In a comment to your «Abend hinter der berühmten Kasbah» I had provided a link to the one showing the lake from the scree couloir which gives direct access to the long summit ridge of the mountain.

Ooops - thanks for reminding me...now things start to fit together. Cheers, Martin

I had forgotten it as well... Then, while retrieving the link, I came to think: I already quoted this when I saw some image with the Inghamar in the far background. And so, after a moment's thought... who could only be the author of a pano in that region??
