Cocina Caliente, the 'Hot Kitchen', and Los Olivitos, are two excellent little venues that are quick to get to and have a good selection of mid-grade climbs. The ease of access and friendly character make them a good choice for a quick hit or as an introduction to the crags hereabouts. Bedees is located on the hillside above Cocina Caliente and presents a fine wall of limestone with some intense, technical and fingery face climbs.
All of the crags face south and catch little in the way of a breeze - it can therefore be scorchingly hot. There is no possibility of climbing in the rain.
From El Chorro, follow the road to Valle de Abdalajis for 1.75km and park 50m before a huge roadside boulder (space for four cars). A small path leads off up the hill to Cocina Caliente and along from below Cocina Caliente to Los Olivitos. For Bedees, head up from the left-hand side of Cocina Caliente.
Park with care as the road is narrow and large lorries use it.
|Really great crag fun routes and non polished rock!just need to be careful as there is some loose rock around. We removed a large chunk balancing on the edge half way up but found no other large pieces. Definitely advise a helmet for this crag!
