Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionThe Castillo d'Alaró is high and exposed hence it can be windy and cold. Most of the crags receive the sun at around mid-day although Sector del Medio stays in the shade for longer. It is worth remembering that tufas are formed by drainage streaks, which means that the face is usually wet after rain. This is often the case from September to November.
The land owners do not permit climbing and actively patrol and remove climbers on the Paret de sa Porta crags, directly below the castle itself. In the more remote sectors, problems are less likely to occur. The best advice is to keep a low profile, use only the described approaches and leave if asked.
Getting ThereFrom Alaró follow the road which is signed for 'Castillo de Alaró'. This soon turns into a twisting dirt track. Eventually the track arrives a restaurant/ lamb ranch.
For upper sectors, such as Paret de sa Porta, continue up the road to a higher lot from where a short walk reaches the Castillo Wall. *Note- the road to the upper lot is quite rough, but is walkable if you feel your car can't make it.
To access lower sectors del Medio, Chorreras and Kiko; from the restaurant, walk back down the road and pick up a good, signed path on the left that leads up the slope towards the crags and eventually meets a diagonal path next to a wall. At a hairpin-bend in the path, jump down over the wall and continue rightwards under the face. Pass a small gray slab and continue along some walls to a larger gray slab underneath the massive wall.
