MIJAS


The small collection of climbs on the cliffs that fringe the tourist mecca of Mijas are minor when compared to the grand crags around El Chorro village to the north, however their proximity to the coast and ease of access, along with a more reliable climate has ensured that the climbs remain popular. Unfortunately, although offering spectacular views of the coast, and being within a few metres of the picture-postcard centre of Mijas, the setting of the climbs is fairly dismal. The Ravine is a dirty and at times smelly spot and the other sectors also have their own problems in the form of litter and dog mess. On the plus side the climbs themselves are on excellent solid rock and offer something to go at for most mid-grade climbers. In a better location the routes would be highly regarded.
