Port De Sollerís DWS crag is a quiet and sheltered little gem, probably because it is not super easy to get to. Itís bigger than it looks from the beach although thereís nothing much higher than 10 meters, except at the far right hand side of the crag, where the cliff rises to around 15 meters. This crag is best visited if you happen to be staying in the area. Donít go out of your way especially if youíre enjoying the delights of the east coast.
Many of the lines may suite first time soloers and those seeking a lower grade experience or enjoy explorative venues. There are still possibilities for new lines dotted around on the crag and indeed a few projects have popped up by inspired individuals seeking alternative venues to explore.
The entire crag is undercut and in most places the sea floor is deep, and is therefore safe for splashdowns.
On the other side of the bay there is a fantastic cave with a lighthouse on top. Unfortunately, this is military owned and it is strongly recommended you stay well clear of it.
Slightly further northeast up the coast lays 'Cova De Ses Puntes'. An area that was first discovered by local climber Miquel Riera and local lifeguard Toni Josep. Ses Puntes offers seven recorded lines to date in the more challenging grade range with nothing really topping out more that 12m above the sea. The venue does not get much sun except in the evenings; this unfortunately means that the venue is often damp.
A number of individuals have reportedly had trouble locating this crag, as there is a lot of down climbing and even a traverse so if youíre short on time and not in the mood for exploring then give it a miss.
Cova de Ses Puntes at present is difficult to locate.
