Description 

There are two sets of crags at Loja - Zorreras and Train station.

The extensive Zorreas crags are largely north facing and excellent on hot days as they lie at 900m. The upper crags largely feature vertical white limestone that has fingery climbing. The lower crags are awesome and the RH side has some superb tufa climbing in the 7s and 8's.

There is comprehensive info in the Rockfax El Chorro guide.

The Train Station crags are located on the other side of the valley above the town of Loja. Details only in the David Munilla Andalucia guide. It is south facing and a good crag for cool winter days.

Getting There 

The best access is via the A92 motorway from where you can drive very close to both crags.

There is a google map of the climbing areas in Andalucia at my website

CONDITION REPORT 
As of November 24, 2015, ALL of the prime routes on the north facing Zorrerras appear to have been chopped. We were there in the spring to scope the place out and noticed there was a climbing ban due to birds. Went back just now hoping to finally do some climbing, and everything has been removed, save an odd anchor or stray bolt high on routes.
