Obviously any trip to El Chorro is going to be great but staying at the Olive Branch makes it fantastic. The Nottingham University Climbing Club has been using the OB for a few years now and they have consistently given us exactly what we’ve needed. This year we took 32 members out to Malaga and we had arranged a pick up from the airport for only 12.50 euros so we were in Chorro within an hour of landing. We had a couple of rooms, the bunkhouse and 10 members camping. The rooms were newly decorated and the tents all had mattresses so we could all recover from the climbing in comfort. Our club usually cooks for ourselves but we were persuaded to take advantage of the food cooked in house. God it was good! The meals catered for our veggies, vegans and meat eaters. They were absolutely delicious and at breakfast, lunch and dinner for 10 euros a day we were blown away. The new sectors opened near the Olive Branch provided some fantastic climbs so many thanks to the El Chorro Bolt Fund. (They are also close enough to get a lunch time swim in when it gets a bit too hot.) Again massive thanks to Mel and Gary for making everything so easy for us, the cooks for the incredible food and the El Chorro Bolt Fund for their work. The week was amazing as were the Olive Branch team.

Beautiful scenery and spectacular views. The accomodation was light and airy, with perfect facilities for all of our requirements. The hosts were very knowledgable of the area and made us feel very welcome. The breakfast was fantastic!! I would definitely be going back for another visit!!! Rachel Surrey England
