SA GUBIA


The huge amphitheatre of Sa Gubia is the most extensive and varied crag in Mallorca. The climbing on the well-developed sections of the crag will suit most tastes and styles, although it is a little lacking in the very highest grades. For the majority of climbers, Sa Gubia is a must visit destination with a host of superb routes that range from slabby grade 4s to wildly steep grade 7s and 8s. It also has a number of excellent multi-pitch routes, some fully bolted, and others, like the essential Albahida, semi trad.
