Rockfax Description
35m. A stunning wall pitch. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A brilliant route at the lower limit of the grade. Climb the awkward pockets and cracks up the wall right of Un Lait Fraiche. Blast upwards up the sustained but less technical wall, to finish up the top groove on sharp holds.

Ticklists: ROCKFAX El Chorro: Top 50, El Chorro dreams 7a and above.

1 fall, after the slopey groove. So technical all the way, mentally taxing!

Having a first go. Quite painful, but very varied and interesting climbing. Would love to send it!

Happy to get this! Fantastic route that requires good footwork and a range of techniques rather than pure strength. Took two large falls in different places to last time when putting draws in as I tried to reonsight it again having forgotten everything. Had a quick rest and got it clean. Nearly managed to drop the very last moves despite not being pumped, though feet were really hurting by the top. Very sustained and would by very hard to onsight but doesn't feel too bad once you've worked out the moves.

Not the right day to try this again.

Really awesome route. So so technical and sustained. Had to really think and fight on every move. Fell off once in second crack having missed a jug because I was pumped. Very sharp in places, will have another go when it isn't 24 degrees!

Arggghhh! Made it through to the top of the groove onsight only for my foot to slip going for the big hold. Gutted to say the least.

Gutted to fall off last hard move in groove on my o/s attempt. No beans left to try for redpoint.

Third go over two days. Fell after misreading the sequence on the onsight attempt, second go it got too dark to see holds on the top slab. Fell again next try a few days later having forgotten the sequence, did some ticking etc while lowering off then led it. Didn't feel too hard on the send, but properly technical! No overly physical moves, just relentless 6c cruxes the whole way. Sharp at the top and an awkward crux, but beautiful climbing! A 70m rope gets you to the ground.. on stretch.
