CALA MAGRANER


The isolated sea inlet and friendly crags of Cala Magraner are a big draw for climbers visiting Mallorca in the winter months, especially so for those in groups of mixed abilities. Cala Magraner is located in a lovely position on the south east coast amidst some of the tourist hot-spots, and climbing here can take on a real holiday atmosphere. The main cliff is similar in character to Tijuana, although it is barely a sea cliff since the crags line the side of a small dry river valley that runs down into the sea, with only a very small section of the crag actually being above the water. The climbs for the most part are technical wall climbs, usually encompassing tricky fingery cruxes, although there are a couple of steeper sections. There are some pleasant, easy slabs for beginners, and loads in the middle grades. As a final bonus, for groups with one of those annoying hotshots who always says "Fraguel" when asked which crag they want to go to in the morning, Cala Magraner has a thoughtfully-positioned cave with plenty that should keep them busy.
