ALARÓ


The elongated hulk of Alaró dominates the view towards the mountains when travelling along the main road that crosses the interior of Mallorca. The small number of existing routes are mostly brilliant and on wonderful rock formations. Sector Chorreras offers 30m pitches up immaculate tufa systems ranging from the pencil-thin to tree-trunk-like. Just to the right, some incredible looking high-grade lines that take the wall above the older slab routes have been established. The other two sectors are not quite as spectacular, but still have some major routes. These include some easier ones on Paret de sa Porta, and some multi-pitch routes on Sector del Medio.
