Saw the thread and was interested, then realised I started it! I did end up going to Todra Gorge and loved it.

As discussed earlier the climbing is not quite as good as in France or Spain, however I was pleasantly surprised. The location easily makes up! The rock is good, the routes are generally well bolted and the grades are generous. You will find plenty, safely bolted up to 19. We arrived in Tangier and caught a bus then taxi to the gorge, then a bus back to Marrakech. Was all very easy (if uncomfortable) and cheap.
There were amazing photocopied, hand coloured-in locally made guides when i was there which are definitely worth getting just as a souvenir! Overall I would certainly recommend it. Let me know if you have any more questions!
