Uphill

A vertical wall and pillar of great rock in a magnificent setting and with some of the finest views in El Chorro. The climbs are either two pitches or very long single pitches and very sustained. There are a number of hard routes that are not described here located on a large and shady face around the back of the Upper Crag that is accessed by walking along the base of the crag to where the cliff fades and then doubling back up to the base of the face.
