Crag features

One of the best smaller crags in the area, which although not extensive, has something to keep most looking for some quality 6s and lower end 7s happy for a few hours. The cliff is located in a remote wooded section of the mountains but is only a matter of seconds from the parking.

Approach notes

Take the road from Palma to the town of Esporles. Continue through the town to a turn on the left towards Puigpunyent. Follow this narrow road up for around 6km and over the col 'Es Grau - 468m'. Drop down and park anywhere you can on the first hairpin after the col. There is limited space on the bend with a few more places possible further down. The first buttress is almost directly above the bend with the main area being further along.

There are many new routes here. Some of the grades are all over the place! Excellent crag none the less.
