Description 

This area hosts some of the longer routes at El Chorro, up to 200 meters. With the exception of a traditional 5.12, most of the climbing on this wall is 5.10 and below. Some of the pitches are only protected with traditional gear but most of the popular stuff is bolted. Make sure you know what your getting into before heading up the wall.

Getting There 

This is the huge part of the ridge that holds many of the El Chorro crags. It is near the west end of the ridge, closer to the river. Hike north and east up the hill from the car park down by the camping area.
