Mallorca is without a doubt one of Europe’s most beautiful and varied sports climbing venues. An abundance of top quality limestone means that the island has an unparalleled variety of routes of all grades.
Combine this with its beautiful beaches, rugged coastline and the dramatic Tramuntana mountain range and it is easy to see why Mallorca is fast becoming an incredibly popular climbing destination. Whether you are a complete beginner looking for a friendly introduction to a new and exciting sport or a well-travelled rock climber looking for fresh challenges then Mallorca is for you.
Rock climbing in Mallorca is well established, with plenty of routes on mainly bolted limestone with single and multi-pitch routes to explore. A huge draw to the visiting rock climber is the variety of routes on offer, sheer slab walls, steep overhanging roofs, juggy tufas and cracks on pristine limestone, for both sport and traditional climbing, so there really is something for everyone.
When to come climbing in Mallorca?
The best time to visit for climbing in when the island is quieter (September to May) when the roads are clear, the accommodation ample and the temperature perfect. That said, with a little research, a hire car and a few early starts it is possible to enjoy climbing in Mallorca throughout the year. Even in August there are cooler mountain crags, tucked away walls and of course deep water soloing
