New El Chorro Bolt Fund Up and Running

Paul Cox climbing on Cocina Caliente – a small crag developed by climbers staying at the Olive Branch.

We are very pleased to announce that a new bolt fund has been set up in El Chorro to help support the local bolting activities.

This is a joint project between Rockfax and the Olive Branch in El Chorro. Funds from the sales of the Rockfax El Chorro book, and other donations from the Rockfax and Olive Branch web sites, will be directed towards this fund, as well as any money from donation tins in the Olive Branch.

The money will go to the Federación Andaluza de Montañismo who are a local organisation who look after bolting in the El Chorro area. Their work is mainly in maintaining fixed gear on routes but also for establishing some new routes.

If you have climbed, or planned to climb, in El Chorro please give generously.

You can reach the fund direct here, or through, or from the Olive Branch site.

We are kicking off this project with a donation of £580 based on early sales of the book.
