/ El Chorro - Mozarabic stairway???
Does anyone have any info on it? How can it be accessed?
Perhaps its blindingly obvious if you're at the crag, but last time we were in Chorro we didn't climb there.
Any help would be appreciated.
I read that after I got back and assumed it was just a reference to the path along the bottom of the crag on the left hand side from sector Sergio to the upper crag. The path seems to have lots of large rock steps in it. I guess we didn't know what it was so didn't think anything of it.
The nearest thing to a stairway I can think of is at the top of Escalera Arabe there are steps leading up to the top routes around the pinnacle. I guess they may carry on as you see people walking past quite a lot when you are up there
The steps that run up under the 'Arab Steps' crag are part of the Mozarabic stairway - as the name suggests,
Can't help with the one at El Chorro, but this is what the Mozarabic stairway in the Cost Blancs looks like.
