Mallorca Access Update

In September 2019 we reported on some access requirements for climbers visiting Mallorca. This was a new version of a scheme that first appeared in 2013 where climbers were required to get permits before climbing in the Sierra de Tramuntana. This is the main mountain area and covers everything in the Rockfax guide from the Valldemossa section to the Formentor section (p.82 to p.211). The permit scheme is still in place although we have yet to hear of anyone being refused access to a crag, or even being asked to produce a permission form.

It is still advisable to obtain permission but the previous method no longer works. Instead, it has been replaced by an online form that grants the same access permission. All you need to do is fill out the form and this gives you a PDF to download which you can print out or store on your phone.
