Detailed Product Description

2011. 304 pages, many areas, 1000+ routes. This is the full colour 'Rockfax' guide to rock climbing in Mallorca. A favourite winter-sun destination, there is an incredible variety in the climbing available and plenty to keep anyone busy - from the huge walls of Sa Gubia to the 30m pumping-tufas of Fraguel; from the barely-tapped splendour of Alaro to the intricate delights of Creveta. It has 1000+ routes in 20 areas with full colour throughout.

The beautiful Mediterranean island of Mallorca is one of Europe's great sport climbing destinations with its magnificent mountains and coastal scenery offering majestic locations for the many fine crags. Add to that a fine climate, a well-established tourist trade and friendly locals and you have an ideal destination for the travelling climber. On a first visit most climbers will be stunned by the sheer quantity of rock on view however, don't be fooled, Mallorca as a climbing destination is still in its infancy and much of the less accessible rock has yet to be developed.

There is still plenty to go at though and much of it is not where you would expect. The mountains have their fair share of fine crags but many other cliffs are located down the rocky east coast and on the dramatic headland of Formentor.

 
The climbing on offer will appeal to those operating at most grades from 4 to 8c - test yourself on some of the steepest and best leaning tufa systems in Europe in a shady north-facing cave; or have an easy day ticking pleasant slabby routes, on a perfect sheet of compact grey rock, while soaking up the winter sun.

Book Format - The book is in the new full-colour photo-topo format. A new set of high resolution digital photographs has been assembled, and on the rare occasion where this has proved impossible, detailed full-colour topos have been used. Some of the full-page crag shots are a breathtaking revelation.
