Description

Albahida is the striking, steep ridge line rising up out of the big amphitheater of Sa Gubia.

Easily visible to the west as one travels north on the Ma-11 from Palma to Sóller, the Albahida arête is visible down and left of the pointy summit of the peak across the valley from Bunyola and splits the massive west facing wall of Cara Oeste and the complex Sector Bomberos.

This sector contains the single most popular and classic moderate ridge climb on the island, its namesake, Albahida. As well, there’s a number of popular variations (Quan es fa fosc and Gubia Variente) and a harder steeper route Supernova, Spits ‘n Giggles, just left of the lower angle arête.

Getting There

Follow the dry riverbed of the Torrent de la Blanca s'Alquar described in the main approach to Sa Gubia.

Near the looming Sector’s Excalibur and Isla Bonita, take the trail up towards those steep sectors and continue around the bottom of the amphitheater to the dry creek bed and the base of the Albahida ridge.

Approach takes around 40 minutes from a carpark on the highway.
