This fact may be surprising, but there are still a number of amateur climbers that visit the island of Majorca to do just this. Mallorca has always been an ideal destination for this unique and challenging sport.
Almost the entire Western coast of Majorca is towered over by the mountain chain Tramuntana.
The heights of these mountains are not staggering, although Majorca’s Puig Major peak reaches a considerable altitude of 1447m (located on the road between Sóller and Pollença, in between two artiﬁcial lakes, in the heart of Majorca mountains).
The quality and the formation of rock in Majorca is of a good consistancy for climbers. There are plenty of route maps for climbers of all levels, and many expeditions are organised throughout the year.
Climbing is the activity of using one’s hands and/or one’s feet to ascend a steep object. It is pursued both recreationally, either to get to a destination otherwise inaccessible, or for its own enjoyment, and also professionally, as part of activities such as maintenance of a structure, or military operations.
