VALLE DE ABDALAJIS


At the far end of the southern face of the mountain range that holds the bulk of El Chorro's climbing lie the charming tiered walls and slabs of Valle de Abdalajis. The climbing is on excellent limestone and of a friendly nature with the added bonus of expansive views and dawn to dusk sunshine. There are plenty of well-bolted lines in the grades from 4 to 6a+ making it a good spot for teams with mixed abilities or those just finding their feet. The areas described are only minutes from the car parking area and the various sectors are well marked with signs at the base of the cliff. This is a lovely area and has vast potential for lots of new routes at moderate grades both short and multi-pitch. Development of the whole area is continuing apace so expect new routes here.
