The best known crags for climbing in the west are Sa Gubia, the largest crag in Mallorca, and Fraguel crag, both near Valldemossa. Between Sóller and Inca lie the highest mountains, encompassing a stunningly wide variety of well-bolted single and multi-pitch routes. The northernmost tip of Formentor has heart-stoppingly challenging climbs for the truly adventurous and experienced, including La Creveta crag with its vertical section and perfect sheer grey slab.
Scrambling is undertaken on excitingly steep, rocky routes which demand the use of both hands and feet. Beautifully rugged, untamed areas for scrambling in the north close to Pollença include Mortitx and the Cavall de Bernat ridge.
For a day out quite unlike any other, go caving and explore Mallorca’s little-known underground world, with an experienced guide.
Ditch the artifice of the swimming pool and water park and go coasteering. There is something very James Bond about advancing along the coastline by way of adventure swimming, diving, snorkelling and climbing, or scrambling up rock and abseiling down cliffs, clad in a wetsuit. The sport can be tailored to be easy or more challenging by a local guide who will take you to little-known coastal sections. Children and families can participate for a day never to forget!
Deep water soloing, known locally as ‘Psicobloc’, is a thrilling extreme sport, similar to coasteering but incorporating solo climbing over a deep body of water. Hotspots are located east at Cova Del Diablo, Cala Serena and Cala Barques. This is only for the experienced climber and never ever to be tried alone.
