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.

Best route in chorro. 2nd go today. After a couple of half hearted goes in the heat the other day. Crux is the first bit on the upper slab.

Will come back. Mega climbing. Bottom felt ok but top slab is desperate! Not what I'd been told so threw me abit!

Some tricky sections. Strength and/or endurance not much use on this one.

Half way onsight. Should have gone 4th go and then kept dropping different moves on the following days until my skin was way too sore. An lovely route for me, a full 35m of climbing with no bumpf from bottom to top. I don't think the UKC description is very accurate.

After a broccoli foothold crumbled above the last clip on the previous attempt! Rock is otherwise totally bombproof and there are plenty of other options about for feet, so won't affect the grade.

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!

Not the right day to try this again.

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.

shed_hed 03/Mar/15 Lead dog

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.

Bristoldave 17/Jan/14 Lead dog

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.
