The Mediterranean island of Mallorca is now well-known as a sport climbing destination and it has also established itself as the home of Europe's best deep water soloing.
The main guidebook to the climbing on the island for the last 20 years has been published by Rockfax and this new 2016 edition adds to this legacy with another blockbusting volume for the sun-seeking climber.
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 information is available on the Rockfax App via the Download tab on the Crags tab. It is available as a single download for £22.99 or as smaller separate bundles. More information on the App here.
What's New Since the Last (2011) Edition
There are five major new crags in the sport climbing section - Cala Llamp, C'as Catala, Es Grau, Commune de Caimari and Torre d'en Beu, plus major new developments at S'estret and Sa Mola de Felanitx. Other areas have had new routes and changes added with plenty of new action photographs and crag images.
