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 north eastern tip of the island and has a wonderful outlook over the bay and Port de Pollenša. Its proximity to one of the popular accommodation spots has undoubtedly contributed to its popularity, but the many climbers who come here are rarely disappointed. The climbing is split over two main buttresses; a vertical section know as Sector Gringo Star; and the characteristic perfect grey slab the Main Wall. The latter is what most visitors come for since compact grey slabs are in short supply on the island and the routes here are as good as any of that genre found elsewhere. The slabs give some fine and fingery pitches on very compact rock, with some finger-shredding holds on the hardest moves. A day here will leave its toll on your finger tips even if your arms may feel rested. Sector Gringo Star offers a contrast with steep and exposed climbing on the various ribs and walls providing a very pleasant contrast and make the whole place even more appealing.
