30m. Top-class wall climbing up the light-coloured right-hand side of the wall which is sustained and well protected. Fingery moves up the wall above the trees (bolt) gain breaks and a long narrow vegetated ledge. Make a technical move past a bolt to more horizontal breaks and go up slightly right to a flake. Move left and up, past another bolt, to a peg. Step up and rightwards to the arete and then gain the top up its left-hand side. Finishing directly up the wall from the final peg is E6 6b. © Rockfax

My only sports training for el chorro. Warmed up on gazza stripper and rabble roser then got on this. Tim put the clips in he was tried from a yesterday session in paraselas cave. He scared me a bit made it look hard. So I had a go, got all the moves until the 5th bolt just over third of the way up then ran out of steam completely. Resulting in rests and three falls one being pretty big. O well made it to the top in the end one to come back for with more stamina. Excellent route

2nd go, should of flashed. Classic route!
some hard moves to start but then got easier to a monster rest then it gets hard. So chuffed to flash this, the clips were in which im glad of as I would have struggled to put them in on the lead. 6c+/7a? dont know I'll take either.
7a not 6c+.

Short on time so top roped. 7a in old guide and 7a in my book too! Took a few shots on bottom sequence. Rest was stamina fest but quality. Impressed with Helens go on it too.

Lead then top roped 3 more times for stamina training. On the lead stepped left where the 2nd old bolt used to be, but there is a way fo doing the move straight that isnt that bad wich i did on the other goes.also looked at the direct direct finish. i presume the direct finish mentioned in the guide is the one that still goes slightly right as straight up would be at least hard eng 6c.
Top roped x2... Stamina training!

Pumpy for first time on the wall of the year. Just about hung in there though. My shoes kept coming off too which wasnt making it any easier. Such a cool wall.
F7a. Came off near top at move rightwards but was quite tird by then...Very good route.
Wimped out and pulled on one of the draws to make the clip by the grotty, slopey ledge high up, but otherwise clean.
