/ How many quickdraws needed for easy Mallorcan routes??
For the easy 3,4 and 5 graded sport routes in Mallorca, approx how many quickdraws will be needed? E.g. Jardiners sense fronteres (3) at Cala Magrana is approx 20m high.
How many quick draws should we pack?
The cheeky answer is that it will rather depend on the length of the routes you are doing rather than the grade :-)
I'd say that 10 will see you right on most routes, 15 will be plenty. And watch the grades. Mallorca grades still are not congruent with France/Spain. In my opinion.....
I'm fairly sure we took twelve plus a couple of slings for rethreading. Didn't have any problems.
Have a lovely time and enjoy cala magraner it's flippin amazing!
Thanks for the advice, bought an extra 5 to total 13 now so should be plenty!!
