For some people the new year started by getting snowed in at ski resorts. We decided to go south and visit Andalusia's limestone cliffs.
We spent two weeks hanging out with a bunch of friends, old and new, trying some cool routes and enjoying the first rocktrip as a family of three. El Chorro fit the bill perfectly - short access, world class climbing in the grade range we were after and - for some reason - it even felt a bit off the beaten path. I guess with the coming of the new guidebook things are going to change, but the beautiful rock faces will remain no less enticing.

Our good friends, 'the vagabonds' posted a trip report which is way better than the one I was going to write, so check it out here. Also, some of the pictures there are by the up-and-coming "MP visual arts crew".
