Published by Rockfax this rock climbing guidebook for El Chorro describes all the bolted sports routes to be found in the huge limestone gorge of El Chorro and the surrounding area. El Chorro is located in the hills 50km inland from Malaga and is one of Spain’s most famous sport climbing destinations. This guidebook details the 10 major sport climbing areas within El Chorro including Les Frontales, The central gorge, Los Cotos and Makinodromo. Also included are the surrounding crags of Mijas, Turon, Desplomilandia, Valle de Abdalajis, El Torcal, Villanueva de Cauche, Poza de la Mona, Puerto Rico, and Pinares de San Anton. In total over 1,500 individual routes are described across a good range of grades.

All the routes are shown on colour photo topos, along with a short description. At the start of each crag there is a location map, and a good description giving a general overview of the crag and type of rock climbing to be found there. At the start of the guidebook there is comprehensive information about the logistics of climbing in El Chorro including how to get there, accommodation, and eating options.
