Description

Mallorca is the largest of the four Balearic Islands--Mallorca, Ibiza, Formentera and Menorca. The island's mountainous limestone interior is home to many epic sport routes and its craggy coast provides some of the most scenic deep water soloing in the world.

(I was there for a week and unfortunately won't get a chance to go back for a while. I've tried to only post information about climbs that I led, so obviously there's a lot out there I haven't put online. If you want control of one of the areas I've posted, I'm happy to cede it to you. I hope that the community will help flesh out this area and make it truly useful. -Anthony)

Guides and Beta

Rockfax has a very comprehensive online route database which contains many routes--but few details, and they publish an indispensable climbing guide called simply Mallorca. Additionally, several of the deep water soloing crags of Mallorca are covered in the book Deep Water and in a supplement available for paid download called Mallorca Deep Water Soloing. DWS World also has some useful information on DWS areas in Mallorca. There is another guide called Psicobloc Mallorca written in both Spanish and English which covers both DWS and sport climbing in Mallorca.

General information on Mallorca can be found on its Wikipedia page.

Lonely Planet publishes a useful Travel Guide to Mallorca and has useful travel information on its website.

Locals report regular break-ins to cars. Do not leave anything of value in your car while you are at a crag. Leave your car with the glove compartment open and any shade over the cargo area of your vehicle removed to show that there is nothing worth stealing. I met a climber who saw the aftermath of several car break-ins (smashed glass, travelers crying over the loss of all their pictures...) in broad daylight at a busy beach area. Because he was camping, he was forced to carry everything that he owned where ever he went. Not fun! Plan accordingly.

Getting There

Mallorca is easily accessed via its International Airport in Palma (PMI). There are also regular ferries that travel there from mainland Spain.
