Crag features

The area known as Les Perxes actually refers to three very different crags scattered along a narrow valley just north of the town of Caimari. Sector Cueva is a super-steep cave and bulging wall with a desperate set of hard routes. The Hairpin Wall consists of a tall buttress with some good easier routes that take advantage of the quality rock on its lower section. The final area is the Muro de Caimari, which is a fine, compact wall of vertical rock, shrouded by trees.
The cave is a useful place when it's too hot or too wet for some of the island's other venues. The Hairpin Wall and Muro de Caimari are more exposed, but are relatively sheltered from strong winds, and will get the afternoon sun, albeit filtered through the trees at Muro de Caimari.

Approach notes

The village of Caimari is situated to the north of Inca, on the Ma-2130, which crosses the mountains to join the Ma-10 north coast road. From Inca follow signs for 'Selva' and then 'Caimari'.
Les Perxes - Park on the far side of Caimari and continue up the road on foot. After 200m pass a sign for 'Lluc 10km' and a 7km post. Take the second track on the left after this, the crag is on the left after 200m. It is also possible to use the parking for Hairpin Wall, and walk back down the road, if the first spot is full. Please don't park under the crag since the road is someone's driveway and the crag is on private property - access could easily be banned.
Hairpin Wall - Continue driving up the road past the turning to Les Perxes and park on the first hairpin bend. Walk along a track to the crag.
Muro de Caimari - Just around the bend from the Hairpin Wall are some small pull-in's on the right and left. If these are occupied park at the Hairpin Wall parking. Walk up the road to the next bend and cross a fence using a stile next to a gate. A small path leads up and left to the crag. Head up to the wall first before going left since this will avoid the bushes.
