 Climbing in Mallorca

The sport of rock climbing is one of the fastest growing outdoor activities practised in the world today.

More and more people, both male and female, are becoming involved in climbing, be it sport, alpine, trad or bouldering, there is something to suit everyone.

It’s fun, challenging, exciting and a great way to keep fit and healthy.

 Climbing on Mallorca

Mallorca is without doubt one of the worlds top venues for sport climbing.  An abundance of top quality limestone means that the island has an unparalleled variety of routes of all types and grades.

We have sheer slab walls, steep overhangs, juggy tuffas, roofs, cracks, multi-pitch and big wall routes all waiting to be climbed.

For most of the year the weather is kind, even off season, shorts and t-shirt are all you need.  Also the fact that you are never more than 15 minutes drive away from a rock face makes Mallorca a great place to learn to climb.

 Rock Climbing Courses

We offer 3 Rock Climbing Courses aimed at the complete novice, or those already climbing at a basic level,
but wish to improve upon their skills and learn more interesting and advanced techniques.

We are also happy to act as guides or consultants for larger groups interested in climbing on Mallorca.

Prices vary according to group size and course required.
