Cuenco

By: Alessandra Volpato
Country: Spain, Region: Mallorca, Town: Mallorca (Baleari)

Cuenco (Cala Magraner) isn't written up in any of the local guidebooks, but it's definitely worth a visit, especially if you like steeply overhanging 8a's.

GETTING THERE

From Manacor drive towards Calas de Mallorca. At the end of an uphill stretch, roughly 2 km before Calas, there's a sign for an Agritur. Follow the dirt track to a gate and park the car. Continue for 15 mins, past another gate, to a house which is being constructed. From here descend rightwards to an enormous cave: Cuenco

THE CLIMBING

Steeply overhanging limestone.

FOOD AND ACCOMODATION

Accommodation is not a problem as any travel agent will have hundreds of rooms on offer, but most of the hotels are about an hour's drive away from the crags. Package deals (flight & car only) can be very cheap and the best thing to do is to find a Bed & Breakfast inland.
