The photos presented here are a collection documenting my time spent climbing and adventuring on the Mediterranean island of Mallorca.
Mallorca. A quick flight from my host city- Granada, Spain– are some of the most beautiful and captivating deep-water solo lines you can find in the world. From all backgrounds, professional climbers venture here each season to experience the freedom of one of the purest forms of climbing- deep-water soloing.
Local guidebooks can be bought, and you can hire local guides to boat you to-and-from each crag along the island. I would recommend this, as many of the routes require a boat for dry access.
Climbers, as always: Pack it in, pack it out.
