S'ESTRET


S'estret is an area of easily accessed crags located just to the south of the beautiful village of Valldemossa. The various crags offer several different attractions for climbers; a series of pleasantly situated west-facing walls overlooking the road in the valley bottom - Sector Cuarentón; a set of boulders which have been developed with a multitude of problems; and an old abandonded quarry with a big steep overhanging wall with some exceptional routes in the higher grades. The Cuarentón area (formerly known as Sector Torrent) has been substantially developed since the publication of the last guidebook. There are now a good set of routes spread across the various walls, including some excellent easier-grade slab routes. The Main Crag itself has recently experienced a massive rockfall on its left-hand side wiping out some of the steepest lines, however the right-hand side of the crag remains in good order and still holds many lines worth seeking out by those looking for shady climbing in the higher grades. In the woods below the main crag the boulders offer some well-shaded bouldering.
