/ Mallorca in July
Also any good bivvy spots/places to steal showers/other good info.
Going for a week!
Val Desteret (in rockfax guide) is in trees and s haded valley, lovely climbing. Caller Magraner is outstanding, you can swin after you climb.
La Creveta has some excellent pitches but time it so you are in the shade.
It is a great place, good climbing and walking plus a beautiful island.
El Muro de Caimari (Les Perxes) is in the shade until lunchtime with routes from 6a to 6c*, all of good quality.
Gorge Blau is also a safe bet, with shade until after lunch, plus has the benefit of being in the mountains so is slightly cooler. You need to be operating at about 6b or 6b* to get anything from this venue tho.... there are only a handfull of 5s and 6as...
Magraner and La Creveta, you will bake at this time of year in both venues... but I would agree with Sestret near Valldemossa.Another good venue with shade from trees and a mix of grades from 4* upwards.
