We are extremely excited to announce our third book of the year – Spain : El Chorro – has just been published. This follows on from the Kalymnos guide in May and then North Wales Slate in September.
El Chorro is one of the longest-standing Rockfax areas which we first covered way back in 1994 with a set of topocards. It then went through three editions of the triple-header Costa Blanca, Mallorca, El Chorro books until it got its own title in 2008.
Now, 24 years after we first covered the areas, comes the biggest and best El Chorro guide yet. The new book has some of the best crag photos we have ever taken. Combine this with the detailed maps and the huge amount of new route development and information and you have the essential guide to this wonderful area.
El Chorro itself has also come a long way in the last 24 years. The old access problems have now mostly been cleared up and there are now a wealth of climber-friendly accommodation options, including the Olive Branch, Finca La Campana and the Climbing Lodge. This really is a great destination especially for those looking to meet other climbers, or wanting to climb without a car or on a budget.
The book is available now for ordering with free delivery in the UK. It is also available on the Rockfax app.
