Crag features

Interesting features and textures and although relatively short routes for the area much different to almost everything else. With varying gradients of rock and styles of climbing, boulder moves on the routes to the right make way for slightly longer but more sustained routes in the middle and left.

An Approach as good as they get and shaded from just after midday till it's dark. Great views of Frontales and the Gorge just try look beyond the road and power cables, worth a trip or two especially in the evening.

Approach notes

From El Chorro village drive down and across the dam, turn right at the junction for the Bobastro ruins and Desplomilandia. Continue along for about 500 meters and the crag will appear on your left with plenty of room for parking.

As of August 2013 a road barrier has been built at the base of some of the routes to the left and a ditch been dug along the majority of the crag's base, though climbing is still possible.
