Challenging

This is a rewarding hiking adventure up one of Mallorca’s most distinctive and accessible mountains. Our route is the easiest of the summit approaches and takes us through typical Mallorcan holm oak woodland, stony tracks and paths with rigorous stretches climbing across rough terrain in places. The last stage to the summit is an energetic scramble up steep boulders and well worth the effort.

We start our ascent via a narrow path winding through pretty holm oak woods. Most of the rest of our route follows a narrow rocky path through a landscape of carritx and boulders with towering outcrops of rock above us as we traverse the northern face of this fabulous peak. There are a few fairly steep rocky sections to ascend but that all adds to the challenge!

The reward for our ascent is spectacular panoramic views across the Tramuntana, the western coastline and towards Palma, and the summit makes a memorable picnic lunch stop and an excellent vantage point for some stunning photos!
