El Chorro (Rockfax)

2 reviews   |  

The huge limestone gorge of El Chorro, located in the hills 50km inland from Andalucia’s coastal city of Malaga, is one of Spain’s foremost climbing destinations. El Chorro’s huge quantity of brilliant climbs, combined with a pleasant winter climate, easy access and wide range of accommodation has kept it high on the list of the winter-sun venues in Europe despite significant changes to the area in recent years.

In 2015 the Caminito del Rey was opened – a spectacular pathway through the upper and lower gorges which has become extremely popular amongst locals and tourists alike with over 1000 people walking it on most popular days. It has brought a major boost to the area.

Although climbing in the gorge is no longer allowed, this has been countered by extensive development away from the gorge with major new developments on the existing crags plus plenty of new crags.

Crags Included
Frontales, Escalera Arabe, Las Encantadas, The Gorge, Los Olivitos, Cocina Caliente, Bedees, Corral East, Rocabella, Caliza, Central Gorge Approach, Los Cotos, El Polvorin, Makinodromo, Desplomilandia, Poza de la Mona, Túron, Valle de Abdalajis, El Torcal, Villanueva de Cauche, Puerto Rico, Mijas, Pinas de San Antón

    More than just El Chorro

    Whilst this isn't the largest of guide books it does offer a wide selection of crags. It covers much more than just the Gorge and El Chorro, so if you don't have access to a car during your visit then it's probably not the best book for you. If you are mo

    Awesome guide!

    I'm new to climbing and this was my guide for my first outing outdoors. I have to say it was indispensable, it led me to great venues and it was largely accurate and easy to follow. Except on our first day we got a little confused and mistook one crag for
