Climbing in Mallorca is a sport activity which is getting very popular day by day. It’s equivalent of self improvement, as much as mentally as physically, ideal for children’s development and as a family activity. Also, Mallorca’s Mediterranean weather, its calcareous rock and thousands of climbing schools and sectors makes it ideal for classic climbing on high walls and the peaks and also for sport climbing, without forgetting psicobloc
Mallorca is one of the favorite destinations for climbers from all over Europe. During spring and summer you can enjoy climbing and the sea with psicobloc, or climbing sectors with the sea in the background, having a swim whenever you want and enjoy a well-deserved rest after a hard days climbing. During winter the mild temperatures and climbing sectors oriented to the south make climbing in Mallorca very pleasant and not to have to practice in indoor climbing walls as most parts of Europe.

Along with Cala Magraner, they make the south coast of Mallorca be one of the favorite areas for climbing on the island.

Near here we can find Es Pontas, famous for the 9a which the North American Chris Sharma completed.
It is a perfect climbing sector in Mallorca for summer because it’s facing north. Situated in an idyllic surrounding and with a fabulous view to Alcudia’s bay, it is one of the most peaceful sectors to climb without being disturbed. Arabs and hermits who founded Arta’s church already named it the “desert of Binialgorfa” because of the peacefulness of the area. Here there are routes of all kind of grades from IVº - Vº to 8b.
Scarcely 20 minutes away from Palma de Mallorca, this climbing school, is one of the first and famous ones for classic and sport climbing.

Sa Gubia is ideal for people who would like to initiate into classic climbing with a normal ascension route which doesn’t exceed the IVº+..
