Description 

Cala Sa Nau is located South of Porto Colom on the South East Coast of Mallorca. It is very scenic and has some great moderate deep water soloing routes to play around on.

According to locals, there are regular break-ins to cars. Do not leave anything of value in your car. Leave your car with the glove compartment open and any shade over the cargo area of your vehicle removed to show that there is nothing worth stealing.


Getting There 

From Felanitx, take MA-4010 toward Porto Colom. Make a right on MA-4012 toward Satanyi and follow it to the village of S'Horta. Turn Left following signs to Cala Ferrera. After a kilometer or so you will see a sign indicating Cala Sa Nau on the left. Follow the signs to parking along the road. When the road ends, continue to walk straight until you arrive at a beautiful view of the cove. Hug the water to your left and continue to walk until the brush and trees give way to barren rock. Cross the peninsula here and you will arrive at the Virgin area.

Me on the start of Caldron.  The orange-brown stain on the rock makes a good landmark for identifying the start of the route.

This is not a top rope route, although the motivated coward could probably set one up. There is no deep water solo (DWS) option so I selected top rope. This is one of the easiest routes out of the water in the Virgin area. Start 15 feet to the right of the cave. Ascend straight up to the left hand side of the orange-brown stain on the rock. The top out is particularly easy, so falling from height is not particularly a concern. As usual getting out of the water is the crux.Listed as 5 under...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
