El Caminito Del Rey Revisited Take Two

Two more views of El Chorro. The top one puts the Caminito in to context with its surroundings. The bottom one shows a closer view of the start. Note the bunch of climbers at the bottom right of the picture. They are about to climb up the route on the left which will take them to the Caminito. This is the access to the path used in the video link posted yesterday as it is no longer accessible from the railway line which is out of shot on the right. Whether the first stretch fell off or was deliberately smashed to stop access I don't know. As you can see from the light they seem to have left things rather late in the day. There is only an hour or so before sunset.
