THE classic multi-pitch in 'El Chorro'. Now fully bolted up to the end of pitch 8 for where 4 x 35m abseils will get you back to the ground. The bolting is somewhat spaced in places so it may be worth taking some supplementary gear if this is at your limit. Gear is also useful for the 9th pitch which is otherwise a steep, bolt-less scramble with quite a lot of loose stones. The popularity of this route have left their mark, especially on the crux sections of pitch 4 and 5. Those 6a may feel well on the upper end of the scale therefore. Semi hanging belays add to the joy. A top class route. Look out for the mini Budda in a pocket come hole.

For the descent there are several options. Some people abseil back down the route from the top of pitch 5. In case you continue until the end of pitch 8, you can abseil via a 4x35m abseil piste. A third option is to continue up the easy 9th pitch. From the top of pitch 9 follow red points upwards right to a notch in the skyline. From there follow cairns and red dots down right into the valley, which will eventually turn left and lead you to the exit path of Caminito del Rey.
