El Torcal, Andalucia

El Torcal is rightly famous as a sport climbing dream spot.  However, there seems to be loads of bouldering up there if you haven’t brought the ropes.

The problem Tribute Act was inspired by a shirtless photo of an uber-ripped Nigel Baker featured in one of the guide books found in the Olive Branch hostel (a lovely, friendly place to stay http://www.olivebranchelchorro.co.uk/).  You can leave Yorkshire but Nigel will always be more famous than you.
