Cova del Diablo Rock Climbing
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.
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.
