Your wrong on this one Mark mate!Its polished loose and dangerous.Certaily not 3 stars,maybe one to be generous, and definately NOT Top 50.Again whats going on? It gets Top 50 in the book but not on the database?

I think you are more than likely correct. I climbed these pretty recently (having done them in the past) and looking at the photos I took I might have started up Un Monton and finished up Big Fun.

Sorry about that.

Will check when I go out in a few weeks

None of the routes in the database have the top50 Icon (for chorro)as we had not attributed them when the database was collated.

This route name means "A mountain of scrap". I was amazed that you had given it more than a star never mind top fifty.

Our first 6a at El Chorro - superb.
Graham Arthur - 28/Oct/09

I thought this was a great route, the best at Castrojo

Backed off this as there seems to be a bolt missing, maybe due to rockfall? The run-out might be protectable with a nut or two.
Tim Waterhouse - 01/Mar/13

Now, the bolts are missing in the middle section!
Cruxler - 14/Mar/13

3 bolts are now missing in the middle of this, so you have to finish off on Big Fun via a sketchy traverse with a big swing fall.
