The enormous rocky spine separating Cala da Sant Vicente and Port d'Pollenca.

Great fun. Hard work but no particularly tricky/technical climbing required. The route follows the ridge line with a huge drop off on the Western side, but it looks like you can escape this at most points by traversing the Eastern side if any points freak you out too much! I began from the shore of the Cala Boquer beach and took the ascent direct. This was very steep at times (more climb than scramble) but I'm sure you can find a more gentle route with a bit more patience. I went anticlockwise, as my guidebook suggested, though I don't see any reason why it can't be attempted clockwise. Personally I think clockwise would make a better route as you're rewarded towards the finish by the spectacular sea views at the northern end (rather than bagging the view early on then walking with you back to it). Would likeky require quite a steep descent from the finish or a backtrack though.

From the col

Got David to confidence rope me on a few short sections. Otherwise a good scramble from the col. Fortunately only encountered the choss whilst in safe places...! Ascent and descent can be hard work amongst the shrubs.

Did this as something a bit different on a day off from climbing. Starting from the beach area the way up is far from clear, we just sort of worked our way up the route of least resistance with the odd bit of borderline climbing in places but nothing which felt like you'd 'fall off' with approach shoes on. Worked our way back along the ridge, exposed in some places with a huge drop into the sea to your right. Managed to get down to see the rock arches (we walked over the top of one without noticing until afterwards). And at the top of one of the pinnacles, I proposed to my girlfriend so a day out I won't forget in a hurry. A fairly long and hard day out though, not much shelter from the sun and it rarely lets up

Really beautiful day out. Would recommend starting early in the day (we started at 7:30) as the weather gets super hot around 13:00 when you reach the end and start to descend to the beach. We soloed the whole route, in adidas gazelles, no need for a rope or pro if you are reasonably fit and competent. Would definitely recommend, but do take care as there is some ridiculous exposure at times and the edge of the ridge can be flaky (big out of body for me). #CutLoose #ChossHunters

Perfect way to spend our last day. Excellent scrambling and awesome exposure. Started at the midway col. The first rock tower looked really unlikely, but an easy, enjoyable scramble once we found the line. The little seaward downclimb was exposed but straightforward. Took a while to locate the downclimb towards the end, but obvious when we did. Descent was interesting! Followed cairns down a gully, that soon petered out - should've backtracked but ended up bushwhacking and traversing the walls of a new villa. Should've continued straight on to pick up the path between Port de Pollença and Cala San Vincente. Finished up with a meal in the port. Brilliant.

Fantastic day out. Started as far out to sea as we could (started traversing to the start too early and ended up bush whacking our way to the rock). Stuck to the ridge as much as possible with great exposure. Easy scrambling with incredibly grippy (read rough) rock. Obviously very exposed but all avoidable. Did the full length which means a descent straight down to Port de Pollenca. There are some steep crags below the ridge before the final peak so it is quite committing for a spell but much easier ground (just worth bearing in mind in bad weather). Though we looked demented, cycling gloves proved invaluable.

Actually part II, as we started up at the midway col where we came down from in 2009, and went westwards along the second part of the ridge which we hadn't done before. Still lots of exposed scrambling, and belayed Elina down one more exposed section.

Great way to pass a day when grandparents offered to babysit daughter on the beach! Considered bailing when thunder rolled as we started the tower, but determination won, and we finished very wet but having had a good day.

Fantastic ridge. Complete traverse end to end. Turned into quite an epic day out, having run out of water about half way. Decided to take a direct 'short cut' back to port pollenca, not a good idea.

Got to base of ridge at 4.30am, still dark. Climbed a corner (trickiest bit with no torch) for a few hundred feet then easy scrambling up to ridge. Not sure if I started from the right point but had scrambled along coast from the beach as far as I could easily go. Good fun along the ridge, impressive drop down to the sea. Trashed my trainers which were not the correct for wear. Helpful to follow the cairns down to the path between Porto Pollensa and Cals San Vicenc. 5 hours car to car.

had no description, so just followed the cairns to the 1/2 way coll and done the western part. pretty straightforward until I lost the cairns near the end of the descent and had to do some jungle bashing

Did as discribed in the Walking in Mallorca guide. Kept to the crest of the ridge as much as possible and did the tops of all the towers. Great day had Black Vultures (2) and (1) Botted Eagle overhead.

Very exposed in parts. Did the traverse of the rock tower which was trick in parts.

Only did the Western half - as described in the Cicerone guide and bottled the rock tower even though we had some gear with us (the 300m drop was too much for my nerves, so took the ledge route). Amazing views, but very slow going with virtually no easy ground. Only the downclimb was technically difficult (grade 2?) the rest was just physical. Ran out of water, was a bit of a epic.

3rd time (April '99 JCB and 05 'YAC). Whole ridge from the end blob overlooking the sea. Bit meandering getting to the start but eventually found the cairns. Once we started it all came back, awkward pull round nose and chossy gully!). Did the tower by the plaque this time as well (easy yellow slab and wall above left of the hole) Didn't rush but car to bar time of about 7 hours was quite good, hot but not desperate (unlike '05!)

On holiday in the area walked up onto the ridge to see what it was like. Found it a great scramble with rough, grippy rock. Bottled the tower direct and ended up traversing along the south side which was probably no easier, just less exposed. Found the aggressive vegetation more trouble than the rock so tended to stick to rock where possible.
