Sa Calobra is a beautiful spot but it often gets very busy, which means your climbing activity can become the centre of attention - okay for some people but not for others. The climbing is found at the mouth of the Torrent de Pareis which can be a fast-flowing river in the winter months, or after heavy rain. Normally though the river is dry and the mouth of the gorge is just a dry pebble beach that slopes sharply into the sea. A boat is recommended, as some of the routes are difficult to pull onto from the sea. If you decide to do The Mallorcan, take a backup flotation device, because if your boat bursts you're going to have a long swim back. The climbs never exceed 12m.
