Rockfax Description
35m. An outstanding expedition which gains a long line of good holds, after a tricky start as for Alerta Roja. An excellent introduction to the wall. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Originally a 2 pitcher, which came out of the gully and climbed diagonally right to a BB at about 15m. Now normally done by heading over the belay, but moving left before it and running up the rib above on pockets, trending slightly left.

Ticklists: El Chorro dreams - 6a to 6c+.

Tried leading at first but struggled to clip the second bolt and felt out of my depth so top roped it, going up to the left of the route for the first few moves. Spaced bolts.

start was wet, so started up one of the 6c to the break then traversed into Sueno de Venus, from the break it's magnificent climbing up pockets.

sustained climbing on polished rock. massive holds after the first 3 bolts but so polished none of them felt totally comfortable. Also very run out near the top. Fun Fun climb for the grade.

I think we worked out we did an 18f+ combining the 6c, 6a+ and 6b into one pitch ...

NAILS for 6a+!! First few clips are tricky, (though you can skirt round them on the left) Then sustained with a few good rests. more like 6b(+). Was in trad mode on this, not sport mode. Also went off route to the right of the big tufa...scary traverse back left! Sweet route though :)

Runout and sustained and long but by the top it becomes a very enjoyable pitch....

Very very very very polished. Perhaps not the best time of the year for this sector but oh my god it was polished. Super run out in placdes as well Not quite sure how this sector gets such good reviews, seems sketchy as f*ck to me.

I've never been so pumped in my life. Not a good warm up. I climbed for another 3 clips after I thought I wanted to rest but eventually gave in to the pain in my forearms. All the moves are easy enough (after the start) if you do them right but the climb is relentless. That the first section is so much harder means you're pumped from the first clip too. Definitely should be done fast.
