Crag features

North Facing crag which is a good retreat from hot weather, of excellent quality routes and rock overlooking the village of Loja and the hilly countyside of the Andalucian hills. With two quality sectors boasting steep and overhanging tufa of 'Perros de Presa' at 8a (+?) through to sharp face climbing, there is quality enough to rival Malham for excellent and hard sport climbing. 60m Rope is essential. The 'el Chorro Rockfax mini guide is grossly out of date, however the names are written on the base of most routes. Most routes are roadside.

Bolts now removed from lower crag? (11/15) - didn't check myself, but an Italian guy had walked along earlier in the day.

 

Approach notes

On the A92 which stretches between Antequera and Grenada, take exit 188 signposted for Loja. From here locate the hotel at the end of village and take a sharp turn (3.8 from the junction, and RH turn if approaching from Antequera) a tiny sign posted for 'Sierra de Loja'. Trend rightwards and take a bumpy (very, but worth it)dirt track uphill, follow it around the bends before reaching a narrow tunnel, go through it (beware of oncomming trucks) and follow a much improved gravel road until you reach the crag. Sector Zorreras Altas is immediately on the left, park here. Bajas is on right hand side of the road, approx 15 mins walk to the middle of the sector.

Restricted Access

Lower crag has now been de-bolted almost entirely. Upper crag is bird banned from 1st Jan - 30th June.

Sector El Cuenco is closed from 1st of January to 30st of June.
