Description [Suggest Change]

After Es Pontas, the most famous climbing area in Mallorca. Arguably the best density of (safe) four star DWS routes in the world. Most routes require a rappel (or a heady jump) descent to reach the base, and there are several in-situ rope ladders to exit the water. A few easy routes on the outskirts of the cliff provide a means of escape, but ascenders are probably a good backup. The highest concentration is in the 5.12-5.13 range.

The new 2016 Rockfax Mallorca guidebook has significantly better beta on the access/exit and makes clarifying the routes much simpler.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Drive to the far SE end of Porto Cristo ( the corner of Carrer del Llaut). Park on the south side of the corner on the south side of the road. Near the corner, a trail leads SE towards the cliff. A few beefy rock tunnels at the cliff edge should be obvious as points to set up sling anchors for a rappel.
