The Mediterranean island of Mallorca is now well-known as a sport climbing destination. Since the last Rockfax in 2006, it has also established itself as the home of Europe's best deep water soloing.
This latest edition of the Mallorca Rockfax (our 6th Mallorca publication in 15 years!) brings together all the sport and DWS into one book. The sport section includes seven crags that haven't appeared in our previous books plus many new routes and sectors at the existing crags, and the DWS section combines the work from the Rockfax book Deep Water, and the Rockfax PDF MiniGuide Mallorca Deep Water Soloing.
The style is in the new glorious full-colour format and features many new crag and action photos. The sport climbing is being written by Alan James and Mark Glaister, and the deep water soloing section is being written by Daimon Beail.
The Mallorca Rockfax is the essential companion to your holiday visit to this wonderful island.
What's New Since the Last (2006) Edition
There are seven new crags in the sport climbing section including the superb Es Verger and a number of other great smaller venues. There is also a full new crag's worth of climbing at Puig de Garrafa with quality routes across the grade range. Other crags have new lines and the odd new buttress added and there are also many fewer question mark routes at the harder crags. Most of the crags shots have been re-taken and the topos redrawn usually significantly bigger than in the previous guide.
The guide also contains a full Deep Water Soloing guide which has been updated and now combines the coverage given to Mallorca in the Rockfax Book Deep Water, and the 2008 MiniGuide Mallorca Deep Water Soloing.
