S'ESTRET


S'estret is an area of easily accessed crags, located just to the south of the beautiful village of Valldemossa. The various walls offer different attractions for climbers: a series of pleasantly-situated west-facing walls overlooking the road in the valley bottom; an old abandoned quarry that has some exceptional hard routes; and some more recently developed walls of eye-catching white limestone. Sector Cuarentón has a good set of routes spread across three separate walls, including some excellent easier-grade slab routes. Above these are some good longer pitches on Sector Pasión. The steep Sector Mejicano gives some ultra-hard pitches that are well worth seeking out when it is hot or wet. The four new sectors to the right of the quarry are excellent additions with lots of high-quality lines in the mid grades. As a final attraction there is some bouldering available in the woods below the crag which isn't documented here.
