PORTO CRISTO NOVO


The spectacular cave of Porto Cristo Novo was first discovered by Ken Palmer and Adam Wainwright in 2002 and is Mallorca's equivalent to the Grande Grotta in Kalymnos with its giant stalactites hanging from the roof of the cave. The main reason that this crag has not seen much development is because you need a boat to get to the routes. Also, the top of the crag is overgrown so most top-outs normally see people taking a long plunge. Another unfortunate issue is that tourist boats drive into the cave in the summer months, which makes climbing on the stalactites potentially dangerous. Outside school and public holidays - October onwards - this is less of a problem.
