The amazing crags that make up Desplomilandia

Description 

A series of limestone crags situated up in the hills above El Chorro. This is the area to climb at when it's hot, as the walls are all north facing and breezy. The imaculate walls are set above the turquoise lakes of Ardales which are perfect for swimming before and after climbing. A truly beautiful place to be.

There are a half dozen or so crags here with a good range of climbs from 5.10 to hard 5.13. Many of the routes are over 30 meters so bring a 70m rope.

Getting There 

From the train station in El Chorro head down and across the river. Take a right, and drive past the gorge and through the hills for a few km. Follow signs for Antequera until you see the crags above you on the right.

El Chupacabras 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  Europe : Spain : ... : La Vida Misma
Interesting climbing with a crux section down low, to a good rest, then up and out of the hole a few more hard pulls to the chains. 2 options out of the hole - go left near the bolt or up to the flake. Looks like the majority use the flake, which is a bit easier, but both ways are great....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
