Port de Sóller Rock Climbing
Sunset from the climbing area of Port de Sóller
The crag faces west and looks out over the sea, getting all the mid-afternoon and evening sun going, as well as a great view of any decent sunset. The trees and general location give it shelter from any wind but can make it a sun-trap in the afternoons. The cave routes will give dry climbing in the rain, but some of the tufas may seep after long spells of bad weather.
Drive to Port de Sóller through the toll tunnel on the C711. On reaching the bay in the town, follow the road around to the right along the sea-front. Continue all the way around until a 'no entry' road is directly in front, just past a parking area on the left - this is a useful alternative parking spot if you can't get up the hill due to blocked roads or traffic. At the 'No Entry' road, turn sharply right UP the hill and continue through two hairpins and park by a bar- The Nautilus. Walk down a track to the right (looking out) of the bar and along a path by some wire fencing where the crag comes into view. It is best to approach the base of the crag via a steep path past the large cave. 5 minute hike.

In October of 2011, there's a sign posted at the fence blocking the access road that the climbing area is closed (presumably due to the obvious construction). The guys at the bar confirmed that the area is closed, but, also indicated what they didn't see...
Went on a quiet Sunday. Kept a low profile. Great spot. Take care.

As of now, the approach is closed due to construction. It might be possible to sneak in. However, don't try it during the construction hours. The foreman threatened to call the police if we do it.
