Hi guys!

Thinking of heading solo to El Chorro towards back end of September / early October.

I read it is usually possible to find other solo travelers/climbers in the hostels around there but posting here just in case there is anyone with similar plans around those dates.

Also, is that time of the year already ok-ish for climbing or is it still too hot?

should be lots of climbers at the Olive Branch

weather is most likely going to be good by then

In reply to Pablo_M: Hola Pablo. I will be staying in the Olive Branch with a hire car 1-3 Oct and again 27Oct-1 Nov and looking for scratch partners so if you are around then I am available. But I believe there are always plenty of possible partners around!

It's still going to be a little on the hot side but there are plenty of good shady crags like despo. Finding partners if you're staying in the olive branch or la finca is never an issue but I've never been there quite so early in the season.

Hey guys

Me and my girlfriend will be climbing in El Chorro between 29 September to 8 October. We are a bit of a mixed ability group she’ll climb 4s and hopefully 5s, I’ll climb 5s and hopefully 6as or 6bs. We’ll have a car and gear. Does anyone (a lone climber or a pair) think they might want to join in on the fun?
