There are some new access requirements for climbing in The Sierra de Tramuntana area of Mallorca which cover many of the crags. A free permit system has been introduced but the system behind it is not reliable. Two local climbers have given us their take on the situation and explained what you should do.
Even using Google Translate, those forms are a bit hard to interpret. Anyone any clue what is supposed to go into section entitled "Expose"?
The documents are in Catalan not Spanish - change Google Translate to Catalan and it should make more sense.
I am having the same problem I have translated most of it, but i'm not sure what should go in the Expos section.
Any help would be appreciated.
Haven’t had any issues whatsoever over the last two weeks, and have climbed at several crags in the protected area. Local climbers do not seem to think there is any risk of getting fined.
Thanks for the useful article Alan and for sharing your experiences SuperLee1985.
Has anyone else had any experiences in the past month or so? Thanks
I just tried to submit a permit application and I got this response... (translated by google translate). The linked website looks impenetrable to me. Heading there on Saturday... Will let you know what happens

Well, we did a full week, 5 different crags across the Sierra Tramantana - no sign of anyone wanting to check permits, nothing.
