The Lobster*** 6c+ s2
[The Lobster, 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
One of the best DWS routes in Mallorca. Long, outrageously steep, and ludicrously juggy, with a relatively easy roof right at the top. Climbing does not get much better than this! The crux is low; don't miss the sneaky lie-down rest at two-thirds height. © ROCKFAX

hmm, relatively easy roof at the top...? I thought that was the crux and not just the psychological one. Spicy
tim newton - DWS O/S - 15/Sep/15

Spicy seas and super greasy! Tried African after and fell in and had a good struggle to get back to the exit rope.

Along with Electric Blue at Rhoscolyn, the best DWS route I've done. Just incredible.
Jus - Solo O/S - 27/Sep/14

Bailed first time making greasy noises due to wet shoes to no chalk.

Cailean Harker - Solo O/S - Sep/12

Woah, this was scary! Was already tired and was just climbin it to get out, top roof was an awesome gripper, the chicken wings were out!
Mike Goldthorp - Solo O/S - 18/Nov/11 with the Majorcans

Fantastic buzz
Bern - Solo O/S - Nov/11 with Adam Brown

Too chicken to solo it so top roped it with a scary loose top rope which pulled me backwards most of the way up! Great climbing but super pumpy and too high to solo!
