Description

An excellent, long traverse normally started from the far (south, southwest) side of the bay and climbed left to right (south to north-ish). Around 500' of traversing. If starting from the landing platform and traversing from right to left, make your way under the shelf, then up and left using a big thread to help you.

Location

Port De Soller's DWS crag is a quiet and sheltered little gem, probably because it is not super easy to get to. It's bigger than it looks from the beach although there's nothing much higher than 30 feet, except at the far right hand side of the crag, where the cliff rises to around 50 feet.

On the other side of the bay there is a fantastic cave with a lighthouse on top. Unfortunately, this is military owned and it is strongly recommended you stay well clear of it.

It is possible to access the traverse from town, leaving the beach and scrambling along the coast up to the corner in the bay. It takes quite a bit of coasteering and more than a few moments of moderate technical climbing, mostly well protected by the sea. It seems others access this route by parking on Cami del Far somewhere and scrambling down the hillside to the route, arriving at the landing platform at the end of the route (if climbing it left to right) I have not done this and can't speak to the approach. 

Protection

DEEP WATER SOLO - The entire crag is undercut and in most places the sea floor is deep, and is therefore safe for splashdowns.
