LA CREVETA


One of the more popular crags on the island is the delightful slabby wall known as La Creveta. It is situated amid some impressive rock scenery on the northeastern tip of the island and has a wonderful outlook over the bay and Port de Pollenša. Its proximity to Port de Pollenša has undoubtedly contributed to its popularity, but the many climbers who come here are rarely disappointed. The climbing is split over several buttresses including a vertical section known as Sector Gringo Star; and the characteristic, perfect grey slab of the Main Wall. The latter is what most visitors come for - the slabs give some fine and fingery pitches on very compact rock, with finger-shredding holds on the hardest moves. A day here will leave its mark on your fingertips, even if your arms may feel rested. Sector Gringo Star and its more recently-developed neighbour, Sector Cara Norte, offer a contrast with steep and exposed climbing on various ribs and walls.
