Chris Gore climbing Lourdes (8a) at El Chorro. © Mark Glaister

Crag features

The reputation of El Chorro as a destination for sport climbing is mainly built upon the notoriety of the truly awesome section of cliff known as Makinodromo, and in particular the central line up its largest and most severely overhanging wall of tufa - Lourdes. A couple of decades on since its first ascent, Lourdes is still one of the most famous climbs in the World and many come to El Chorro only to try this one route! Today Lourdes has been joined by dozens more climbs on the Makinodromo itself, and also the whole of the long line of cliff that the Makinodromo is just one part of. This new development still has a long way to go, but the climbs on areas like Los Tigres are a promising pointer to the quality of routes that still remain to be discovered.
