COLLEGE students are warming up for an adventure that will take them up the highest peak in North Africa.

Ten outdoor-education students at Northumberland College’s Kirkley Hall campus near Ponteland are planning to climb Mount Toubkal in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco as part of their course.

Accompanied by two tutors, the expedition team will fly to Marrakech on June 7, then on to Imlil in the mountains, where members will spend two days acclimatising before the five-day trek, which will involve passing through remote valleys and high-altitude passes to the 4,167m summit.
