/ El Chorro if you cannot walk far
thinking of going to El Chorro and one of my mates has knackered ankles so cannot walk far, particularly on rough ground. So is there roadside or very short easy approach climbing at El Chorro and if there is, is it ultra polished, looking at 5+ and 6a grades.
If i remember right Sector Castrojo on Frontales is an easy approach, if you have a car. but if you fo "Un Motion de Charetta" 6a+ be aware that the last 5 hangers were missing a few months back!!
I'd go somewhere else to be honest assuming you're still at the planning stage.
Any suggestions ? North West England based, so flights from Man, Liv or Leeds Brad best.
Valle de Abdalajis is only 5 minutes from a parking area, and the left end of Frontales is easily accessibly from a parking place - Sectors Castrojo and Los Albercones.
The right of Frontales and Escalera Arabe are further to walk, although the forest path to the latter is easy going until the final slopes to the base of the crag. We didn't find any ultra polish and were climbing at the grades you mention.
Cheers, that sounds optimistic
Flight to Alicante and then Calpe?
More inclined to take jk's advice actually - fly to Alicante, go climb at Sella?
Same as someone else said above. Go to Sella, you can drive to the bottom of some crags, and even belay from the front seat of the car if you want to.
Thanks for the replies, except the one from dirt bag Woodsy.
As a side issue is it worth taking Via Ferratta kit for Camino Del Ray is it equipped as a Via Feratta? I have the kit so it`s no hassle, just wondering.
