Description 

Beautiful, compact limestone in a spectacular position with views of the open sea to the north and the bay at Port de Pollenca to the south. The approach hike also has amazing views of Cap Formentor.

Crag is west-facing, and can be windy. On the day we were there was a decent wind out of the east and we were protected from it.

The main wall (the last wall you come to on the approach) has a good selection of easy routes beginning from about 5.7. There is harder stuff on up to 6c on the Main Wall, and harder things at the sectors to the left (I didn't climb at those).

Getting There 

Approach is about 20-25 minutes and involves a little scrambling which is somewhat exposed and would not be super-fun if wet (some polished slabs). See Rockfax Mallorca, their description is good.

Note: I did not climb this route. Some people we were climbing with did, and liked it, but the leader was very glad to have brought his rack and said it would have been pretty uncomfortable just on the bolts. I only commented on the route because it is one of the easier lines at the crag, and you might be unpleasantly surprised if you hopped on it expecting a well-protected sport route....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

This area was a mixed bag, as of March 2017.

The scenery was breathtaking and the overall vibe here was super relaxed. Not to mention the concession stand at the parking lot for the tourists at the Cap Formentor overlook...ice cream and coffee in the parking lot after a full day at the crag? Amazing!

The approach was pretty steep, and the scramble down would be incredibly scary if it were wet, but the views from the top of the col were unbeatable.

The crag itself was a little less awe inspiring for me, though, as all the lines in the first three sectors (Cara Norte, Gringo Star and Lion Rampant) were unclimbable due to very rusty hardware.

Though the Main Area did have a few lines that were better maintained, the majority of the routes here were also in pretty poor shape. Add to that, these lines were either no harder than 5.9 or incredibly sharp, relatively non-descript crimping with starfish climbing moves (if it means anything to you, think Smith Rock slab movement, but with much sharper holds).

In all 10/10 for location/vibe and 5/10 for routes/hardware.
