Topic - El chorro for outdoor newbies?

Mrchips - on 04 Dec 2012
Gf & I are thinking of heading to el chorro for a few days over the mayday weekend next year. We’re both climbing up to ~6a indoors but have only been outdoors once before at les Gaillands in Chamonix.
There, we took a guide for the day as we had never been on an outdoor crag before but mainly for the use of their rope/draws & helmets as we couldn’t spare the weight/space to bring gear from home.

What are the general thoughts about el chorro for outdoor beginners?

Would we be out of our depth if we went out with big rope/draws/helmets & copy of rocfax? Or, if we decide think we’d be better with a guide for a few days, is it easy enough to find one locally?

I should mention, I have no problems with threading lower-offs and we wouldn’t be doing any multi-pitch routes.

thanks for any help!
