Caimari – the best of the new developments in Mallorca?

Having left our villa in Soller we’re ensconced in a quirky hotel in the centre of the island – santori de Cura is a converted monestary at the top of a big hill with stunning views to all corners of Mallorca.

Great spot to watch the sun go down.

There’s been a ton of development at Caimari since we last visited “sector hairpin” and the area now has a tremendous selection of routes across the grades, and a real sweet spot in the low 7s. Once you’ve battled your way past the squadrons of cyclists sweating up the hill (being very careful to give them ample room, but they don’t help themselves when they overtake you simultaneously on both sides when you are hanging back to give the Pelton ahead a bit of room!) and scrounged a parking spot that is!

We caught up with Justin and Chris who are out here too for a couple of weeks, and had kindly reccied the crag a couple of days earlier – what a good recommendation!

I had my most successful day of the trip in terms of ticks, with the excellent Las Bolas de Chico, a fairly amenable 7a+

… And Sweetie the Pooh, a really sustained and fingery 7b

Plus another 7a for good measure 🙂 Liking this crag a lot!
