Description

La Telefon is a moderate, slightly meandering, traverse. The climbing goes as high as 35' with great water protection, but the name of the game is traversing. There are excellent mono pockets, sharp jugs, a couple cracks, and even an easy OW move or two. There are one or two sections that are slightly committing, with a not-so-great landing, but overall it is very well protected and the water is calm. The great thing about this route is the sense of adventure, it goes much further than 400', but I think it deserves a slightly steeper rating if you go much further than than.

Bonus points if you reverse traverse after the route. 

Location

North East end of the main beach in Magaluf. The easiest way is to take the stairs down from the hotels near the start of the route. The closest are HSM Sandalo Beach and Universal Hotel. But the walk/run down the beach is ta very relaxing approach if you're staying elsewhere. Once you arrive to the end of the beach, you'll approach a series of stairs laid in the rock. Climb those, and reach an easy downclimb into a very rocky/pebbly beach Continue walking down that pebbly beach until your reach the start of the route.

Protection

DWS, only a couple spots without excellent water-landing, and the climbing there isn't difficult.
