Description 

Mallorca's best crag for steep hard sport climbing. Home to several world class lines including "Football Fan", and the islands only 5.15a, "Big Men" put up by Iker Pou.

Grades here tend to be very solid at the grade. Don't come here expecting soft Spanish holiday grades or overbolting.

Also many of these classics stay dry in gentle rain but if it comes down hard expect seepage for several days at a minimum. If it's steeping go somewhere else - holds can break.

Getting There 

Head to Bunyola, and just before entering town, take the first right. Head up the hill which has hairpins and turns to dirt. As it crests the hill park on your right. Walk down past firepits and follow cairns to rebar rungs. Head down here and follow the cliff rightwards to the base of the areas.

Moderate climbing to a steeper section up high with some thought provoking movement. Fingery climbing, hard to read, but what it does have in sustained nature it makes up for in quality in the second half. 3.5 stars....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

As with everything on the island, wide variance in the bolting, from sketchy rusted hangers to bomber glue-ins. Most of the better lines have been retrobolted, but as always inspect carefully!

Thanks for adding this area, Mark. As an admin for the Spain area, I added the various sector sub-areas as the guidebook has it organized. Hopefully this will help it fill in better in the future.
If you have any information/beta to add to the sector descriptions, or want to take ownership of the new sectors, let me know.

Looking better now Jason and yeah I think it will help too. No need to take ownership but thanks for offering. Great destination but I probably won't be able to go back for some time. Cheers.
