Description

The Snatch area possesses a few more moderate climbs than either the Cova or Metrosexual areas, but is also home to a few monster climbs that clock-in above 8a.

Getting There

From the Cala Barques beach follow the path to the left over the rocky spit of land until you reach a small bay with two large caves facing you. The left cave, which has another small cave to the left of it, is the Metrosexual area. The large cave to the right is the Snatch area. Walk left around the bay and (carefully) clamber down onto the platform between the large and small cave. The Snatch area can be accessed by either swimming past the Metrosexual area to the next cave. It can also be accessed by swimming directly into the back of the Metrosexual cave. There is a short underwater swim-through to access the back of the Snatch cave. It is also possible to down climb on either the left or right-hand sides of the cave(potentially dangerous falls).
