Flying into Magala arriving late afternoon on 28 Nov. Looking for a climbing partner or partners for a few days.

Interested in easy to moderate grades at mainly the 4 and 5 level, although would consider easier or a little bit harder too.

Should the weather be poor or as an excursion after climbing, I’d be interested in via ferrata (if possible in a light rain), hiking and/or seeing Gibraltar and some of the local sights near El Chorro. Picasso museum, old town Malaga, Alora, etc.

Would like to stay in a non-camping location near or at El Chorro and would share accommodations. Wouldn’t mind a wifi connection and near to dining options. Planning on eating dinner out each night.

I’ll have a car. Plan to fly out early on Tuesday, 3 December.
Can bring full rack if someone wanted to just show up. Please let me know. I’ll probably pack enough gear to solo easier grades (set of light draws and a light rope) unless someone gives me a head’s up they’d like to climb. Carry on for you especially nice if you’re flying a lost cost carrier. I’ve already got tickets purchased and I get a reasonable allowance for luggage, so...

If you’re a party of three and might want a fourth, let me know! Or, if you are thinking of a quick trip to the area and need someone to climb with…give me a shout. Would also consider someone with little experience so if you’re a beginner than can sort of belay (ha ha), we’d probably be ok.

I’ve never climbed here but have guidebook(s) and usually can figure out a fun game plan. Right now I’d like to hit the Escalera Arabe, Valle de Adbalajis, Turon and Los Cotos sectors as a rough schedule for the four days, weather depending. Prefer a few easier routes than grinding out a harder project.

Let me know!
