Hiking into La Creveta. Stunning views.

Description 

Beautiful, compact limestone in a spectacular position with views of the open sea to the north and the bay at Port de Pollenca to the south. The approach hike also has amazing views of Cap Formentor.

Crag is west-facing, and can be windy. On the day we were there was a decent wind out of the east and we were protected from it.

The main wall (the last wall you come to on the approach) has a good selection of easy routes beginning from about 5.7. There is harder stuff on up to 6c on the Main Wall, and harder things at the sectors to the left (I didn't climb at those).

Getting There 

Approach is about 20-25 minutes and involves a little scrambling which is somewhat exposed and would not be super-fun if wet (some polished slabs). See Rockfax Mallorca, their description is good.

Note: I did not climb this route. Some people we were climbing with did, and liked it, but the leader was very glad to have brought his rack and said it would have been pretty uncomfortable just on the bolts. I only commented on the route because it is one of the easier lines at the crag, and you might be unpleasantly surprised if you hopped on it expecting a well-protected sport route....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
