Via Ferrata: Camino Del Rey

Bookmark and Share


El Caminito Del Rey (The King's Pathway) is a walkway, now fallen into disrepair, pinned along the steep walls of the narrow gorge of El Chorro, near Malaga (approximately 2 hours drive from Gibraltar).

The walkway has now gone many years without maintenance, and is in a highly deteriorated state. It is approx 1m wide, and is over 200m (700ft) above the river. Nearly the entire path has no handrail. Some parts of the walkway have completely collapsed and have been replaced by a (Via Ferrata) beam and a metallic wire on the wall.

However, using specialist climbing equipment, Barbary Rock Adventures safely provide an exhilarating day on the walkway. Join us on a 4-5 hour journey as we guide you through a via ferrata and short scramble to the exciting high level walkway. There is also a chance for you to try your hand at some rock climbing on one of the amazing rock routes in El Chorro. At the end of the day we leave the walkway by way of a massive abseil!
