Nearing the top of Fortuna on a very slimy day.

Description 

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 lines in the Snatch area. Climb the face and crack on the left side of the cave to the top.

Listed as 6a under the French system with a safety rating of S0.


Protection 

The sea.

Fun route. Harder than the 5.8 it is listed at here, but still not too bad. Graded 6a+ in the newest Mallorca guidebook. Often very wet and slimy but still very climbable even when wet. Fun first route at Cala Barques with safe falls the whole way.
