I've been to some amazing places in my life but Mallorca may top the list as my favorite. When you see this video I think it's pretty easy to understand why. This is some footage taken a few years back exploring the amazing potential on the wild west coast around the village of Soller.
In April 2015, Spanish climber Iker Pou made the first ascent of Big Men, a 20-year-old project in Mallorca. Carlos Raimundo bolted the impressive line, but it sat unclimbed until now. Pou has proposed a grade of 9a+ (5.15a), positioning it amongst the hardest climbs in the world.
The Spanish island of Mallorca has a lot of things going for it - great climbing crags, a beautiful coastline, and amazing people among them. Combine crags, coastline and amazing people and what do you get?
Climbing holidays have a habit of passing in a blur. You're up early to maximise tour time at the crag, you climb hard all day before heading back home where you have just enough energy left for food and the odd cerveza before bed.
