El Chorro - Poema De Roca
This crag is situated in a depression beneath "Las Frontales", a rocky buttress to the NE of El Chorro. Most routes are steeply overhanging and considered some of the best in the area. "Poema de Roca", the route that gives the crag its name, is easily identifiable by the hanging belay seats that lead up this 6 pitch wonder.
Located high above the valley, the views from this crag are superb.
Getting there is easy and quick: follow the road from El Chorro station towards the Abdagalis valley, turn left at the fork (water cistern), shortly afterwards turn right and then left again. After a small opening where cars can be parked a steep path leads up to the crag.
Sustained overhanging stamina routes.
FOOD AND ACCOMODATION
Accommodation is not a problem in El Chorro. Visitors can choose from a campsite, the characteristic climbers' "refugio", the hotel next to the station and many welcoming "fincas".Finca la Campana, run by John and Christine, is friendly and highly recommended. e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Instead of turning left at the cistern continue along the main road to Las Encantadas, highly recommended for easier, vertical routes.
