Not too shabby view from the crags.

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.

Madre Salvaje 5.12d 7c 28 IX 28 E6 6b  Europe : Spain : ... : El Triangulo
Move up and left to a prominent ledge, then make a few reachy moves on mostly good pockets, sidepulls, etc. Head right for a rest or take the direct version straight up (harder) and work into the weakness. Then cut right towards the tufa (very long perma-draw here as of 11.21.15) and fire up into the crack. Another rest can be found here to take some of the sting out of the pumpy exit moves. Brilliant climbing....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
