On 20 October there was a huge storm in the El Chorro region which caused some damage. The worst areas were up by Teba and Campillos, but there was also some disruption in El Chorro itself.
The road from El Chorro to the lakes above and Desplomilandia has been damaged – photos above. Currently the coaches for the Caminito del Rey are going through Alora to get to the top and this is also the way that climbers need to go if they want to climb at Desplomilandia.
The local opinion is that the road should be repaired by the end of November – just in time for the new El Chorro Rockfax.
Thanks to Susan Mitchell from Alimona Chica for this information and the photos.
