Rock Climbing in northwest Mallorca

Northern Mallorca is much quieter than the south of the island where the main tourist areas are. Situated between Soller and Inca are the highest mountains in Mallorca, where there are many picturesque crags.  The dramatic headland of Formentor near Pollenca provides a number of good crags including the popular crag of La Creveta.
