Crag features

Hidden away in a tree infested gorge, close to the town of Calvia, is a little wall which offers some excellent slab and wall climbing. The crag is beautifully situated and very friendly, except perhaps on your finger tips!
The routes tend to be slabby but the crag steepens towards its left hand side offering some more sustained and steeper pitches.

Being situated in a woody valley, the crag is very sheltered in cold or windy weather, however this means it is also a sun trap in hot weather.

Approach notes

Leave Palma westwards on the motorway, towards Andratx. At the the Calvia junction follow the road towards Calvia village. Just before Calvia is reached take a right down a road signed "Col.legi Public" which bypasses the town. At the end of the road turn right and after 2km you will pass a rough gate on the left, just past a house called "San Boronat". A layby with room for 2 cars is found just after this on a bend. Negotiate the gate carefully and follow a well worn path for 75m then bear leftwards into the trees. (Approx 10 mins from the car layby).

Access Advice

There have been access problems at this crag in the past, hopefully these problems have now been solved and access should now be allowed. However, if you are approached and asked to leave then please do so.

Arrived at the parking at 11.00, still aimlessly bashing through the woods at 15.00; went home with ragged legs and no ticks. Where is it?
