Rock climbing has become main stream. People have discovered it’s not all about strength.  There’s a lot of mental ability and good technique required. It’s very accessible with climbing and bouldering gyms springing up in towns and cities worldwide. It’s now an Olympic sport with three different disciplines. In Mallorca we are especially lucky as we can climb outside all year.

We can teach you how to rock climb in Mallorca, the safety side to sports climbing can be taught in a relatively short period of time, 2-3 days. The muscles and techniques take longer, but after the 3 days you will have sufficient knowledge to sports climb outdoors safely. Sports climbing is different from traditional climbing in that the protection (bolts) are already fixed in the rock unlike traditional where you have to place your own protection. Mallorca has nearly a 1000 pre bolted routes.
