Andalucia (El Chorro), Spain

Sun Rock

Located a short drive to the north of Málaga, El Chorro provides some of the most famous winter rock climbing in Europe. The area has a wealth of crags and literally hundreds of bolted/equiped sport climbing routes to suit all tastes and abilities.

We will climb single and multi-pitch routes using pre-placed bolts and natural protection on the fine limestone rock. The warm, dry weather and abundance of low cost flights to Málaga makes the winter months a great time to migrate south.

We fly to Málaga on the Mediterranean coast and then drive north to El Chorro. Our accommodation is comfortable and conveniently located close to the climbing. We will explore a variety of crags in the region as we savour beginner and intermediate level climbs. Our days are generally pretty relaxed and provide plenty of time for instruction, climbing and exploring.

This year, in addition to our regukar December week, we are also offering weekend getaways.
