/ DWS in Europe
I'm currently trying to plan a break this summer for me and a few friends to (hopefully) either Mallorca or Sardinia. I'd like to go and do a bit of deep water soloing, but the sport doesn't seem well documented, and I'm having difficulty finding out where the main locations are. Does anyone have any experience of this sort of thing that they could share?
Tom we have great DWS over here on the Costa Blanca. Rockfax guidebook is good done by Mikey Robertson.
Last week August we are opening early to go play!
For Mallorca type psiobloc into google and see what comes up.

sorry I spelt psicobloc wrong!
Mallorca has at least two full photo-topo guides available.
1. a very good and accessible spot is Cala 'e Luas on the E coast http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbtFu5_b514
2. the east coast between where we live and Cala Gonone has lots of good spots, but these are only accessible by boat (meaning €120 a day and you need someone to drive the boat, someone to fend it off the pointed limestone,...) and it is generally quite remote
3. Alghero has some good spots, again boat access
4. then a nice arch near Oristano
Google "DWS Sardinia" to find the Cala 'e Luas topo ciao Peter
