EL Chorro, mountain climbers paradise

Article text
The Gorge at El Chorro, Andalucia, Spain
If you are keen on mountain climbing El Chorro is the place for you. Take a train from Málaga and from the El Chorro station find your way passed a nearby camping site, follow the road till the end and down a slope. Once you have crossed an old railway bridge YOU ARE THERE. And mind your step. The path is also called the King's little pathway since 1929 when the Spanish king visited the place. Now it is in dangerous condition and only for those with a steady foot. Parts of the path have collapsed and you need to step along on what is left of the metallic support construction. During our stay we did see two climbers that seemed to do very well indeed. Easy for us to say! A very photogenic place both down in the valley and up at the mountain top. Recommend this place!!!
