+1 I've done it several times. Without a car at each end it's a long day, but possible to do both ways in a day. Weather dependant and to be avoided if there is any likelyhood of thunderstorms as it flash floods. Depending on water levels you may have to swim some sections, but I've also done it without getting my feet wet.
Also the Cavall Bernat Ridge is probably one of the best ridge scrambles in Europe. Very exposed but at the grades you quote you should be OK soloing it.
+2 for Pareis. Was completely dry last time I did it. Easy enough to hitch back up if you get to the bottom before 4-5pm.
Good rocky ridge walk: Sa Rateta to L'Ofre from the Cuber reservoir. Best views on the island.
Good scrambles: Galatzo from the east ridge (weave your way up gullies to the summit); and from Sant Elm (way over on the west coast) up the ridge above Sa Trapa to pt 492 of Ses Basses.
