El Chorro, climbing at Las Encantadas

12.12.2008 by Planetmountain

Mark Glaister, author of the recently published El Chorro guidebook, reveals why the area in general, and Las Encantadas in particular, is sport climbing heaven in Andalusia, southern Spain.

El Chorro has been one of Spain's premier sport climbing areas for the last two decades, offering over 1000 routes in a unique ambience. One of the pearls of this impressive limestone gorge a mere 50 km from Malaga is Las Encantadas - the Enchanted Crag - which really does live up to its name. Check out the article to find out why, and the video of the infamous El Camino del Rey.
