Description 

Overlooking Loja from the hills to the south. The Sectors Zorreras Altas, Charco Negro and Zorreras Bajas generally face north. Climbing can be had here year round. The area is quality limestone with combinations of slab and overhanging rock.

Getting There 

Exit A-92 at the gas station on the south side of the freeway. On the east side of the parking lot there is a dirt track that curves through the trees and past an old, dilapidated building. Continue up the hill and the crags will be obvious on your left. Sector Bajas is off the hill on your right. The approaches are 2-15 minutes.

The crux seemed to be about mid-height, with a couple of small holds linking the big holds. The route looks thin but the holds are large and plentiful. Slightly overhung on perfect rock. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International

The Zorrehas crags are very good, but they can be cold in winter because they don't get much sun. Plus some of the best routes on the amazing Sector Baja take tufas and these get wet in Winter.

The Train Station crags on the opposite side of the valley are a much better winter / bad weather option. They are not anywhere near as extensive, but catch any sun going.

The Rockfax guide has missed out these crags, but there is some information in the Munilla Andalucia guide.

Other bad weather options in the area are St Anton in Malaga, Montefrio, Cogollos and Villavueva del Cauche.

I have added a couple of links that may prove useful above, but if anyone needs more information please just contact me.
