Spain – El Chorro

Late autumn in Spain – the rock’s warm, the beer’s cold and the pool has had eight months to warm up. If you fancy a week sport climbing in a T shirt in October, this is the trip for you! El Chorro has dozens of crags with thousands of routes and RoCs has a copy of the new (December 2018) Rockfax guidebook. We’ll explore several areas, perhaps including some long (40m+) and multi-pitch routes. For more inspiration see

Eight of us went in 2019 and had a brilliant time! We flew from Bournemouth, stayed in a large villa and self-catered (well, Hannah cooked every evening with a little assistance!) and rented two cars for flexibility (volunteer drivers needed…). I’ll be booking accommodation in the Spring so if you want to make sure of your place I’ll need a deposit before 30 April.
