Los Cotos Malaga / El Chorro, SPAIN
Climbs 72 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 323m a.s.l – Faces S
The slabs of smooth and subtly-featured limestone that make up Los Cotos are a welcome alternative to the steep and strenuous climbs on the neighbouring cliffs that surround it. The setting in the secluded central Gorge area is magnificent, making it a lovely place to enjoy some fine climbing with the sun on your back, but best avoided in warm weather.
Los Cotos is best approached through The Gorge although traditionally most people have used the now-banned tunnels. The details of the approach from the village and passage along the Walkway through The Gorge are on page 108. Once through The Gorge, continue along the Walkway until a path leads down to the orange groves and river. Cross the river and walk a short way to Cotos Bajas and further on under the railway to the Medios and Altos areas.

The routes here are either very polished or extreamly baddly bolted. The upper section has some of the worst examples you will ever see.|
