Majorca Rock climbing
Half term was spent on Majorca. Naturally we took our rock climbing gear with us. Even Jane who hasn't climbed for a while.
Our friends Jeff and Faerthen flew in from the US to join us.
The last time I was there was 20 years ago. I was told that there had been a lot of "development" since then. Well I didn't see any. I was not impressed. The Majorcan climbing was not climber friendly. Access was made tedious - for example at La Gubia climbers were directed up a dried up river bed full of huge rocks when just to the right there was a perfectly good "private path"
The main belays were shabby too with single bolts. This is just unacceptable.
