Looking southeast from the base of the crag, towar...


This wall has a little east facing aspect, so it get shade in the afternoon. The climbing here is moderate sport routes, on pocketed gray limestone. The rock quality is mostly great, with a touch of choss on the left side of the crag. The wall has the highest concentration of moderate routes, so it seems to be the most crowded.

Getting There 

When you drive south out of the town of Grazalema the road cuts back to the west, and from this point you can see the entire area. (The view is the same driving in from the south). Sector Placas del Cortijo is the last buttress on the left. Drive around the little farm, and park in the dirt pullout just off the road. The wall will be right in front of you. Hike up the grassy slope, and enjoy.
