Roughly 2001 – My first trip to El Chorro, with Matt Leggett

This time of year climbers are often away on a sport climbing holiday. A very popular destination is El Chorro in Spain. I first went there in about 2001 with Matt. It was just after there were 5 deaths in 1999/2000 on the ruined Camino Del Rey – Kings Walkway. After our trip, the walkway was partially closed for over a decade – and after about 4 years of extensive repairs and renovations, it reopened in 2015.
