Our third book of the year is a long-awaited new edition to an old favourite – El Chorro in Andalusia, Spain. This is in fact our longest standing guidebook area outside the UK, going back to the first publication in 1994, but the last edition was in 2008 and things have moved on a lot since then. There area has also been dogged by rumours about access problems which has kept some visitors away. In reality there has always been plenty of climbing on offer here although there are some strict requirements for certain areas and a few older areas are no longer available. Luckily new developments have significantly added to the climbing on offer overall.
This new Rockfax covers everything in the El Chorro area itself which contains enough climbing to keep most people happy for many trips. There are also nearby crags at Desplomilandia, Valle de Abdalajis and Túron and a few further afield including a couple of great new crags down by the coast. We have used a lot of the new map and photo techniques that we have been developing in recent books. The photo-topos are the best ever seen for the area, the maps the most detailed ever produced and all this is presented with a stunning set of action photographs to complete the inspiration. We have been very happy to work with some great local climbers including representatives from the Federación Andaluza de Montañismo (F.A.M.) and from the Asociación Andaluza de Escaladores (A.A.E.E.). They have been very supportive and helpful with information on routes and access requirements and we are happy to be supporting the work of both of these organisations with financial contributions coming from the proceeds of this book.
You can pre-order a copy now at a special offer price of £26.95 (RRP £32.95). As soon as we get stock in early December, we will send the book out directly. This is the fastest and cheapest way of getting hold of a copy.
