Deep water soloing (DWS) is known in Spanish as psicobloc, which directly translates to “psycho-bouldering”. It involves climbing cliffs with no rope, but with the warm, blue waters of the Mediterranean ready to catch your fall.
Majorca, the birthplace of hard DWS, was made famous as a world-class climbing destination by Chris Sharma. In 2007, he ascended the iconic Es Pontas arch, putting up a “king line” potentially as hard as 9a+/b. Since then, climbers from all over the globe have made their pilgrimage to the Majorcan cliffs to test their endurance and their mettle!
The limestone cliffs offer test pieces for every level, starting with easier grades (5+) and low heights.
DWS is best experienced from a boat, which also provides safety. During the trip, we explore the Majorcan coastline by sail boat, which also serves as our home. After a long climbing day, there’s nothing better than relaxing on the sundeck or visiting wild, secluded beaches accessible only from the sea.
Deep-water soloing can be a little intimidating at first, but with the help and instruction of our experienced guides, you will quickly gain confidence and get to fully enjoy this beautiful, pure style of climbing. The Majorca DWS trip is all about new experiences, adventure and simply having fun in the great outdoors, but with Rockbusters coaching you might also surprise yourself with some hard sends!
Majorca also offers many world class sport climbing crags which have been bolted in recent years. They are worth visiting not only when the seas are rough! We will show you the best, secret locations, often not featured in any guidebooks.
With innumerable quality lines available on the coast and throughout the island, you will experience a great climbing adventure while constantly improving your technique and performance. You will immerse yourself in the local climbing culture and enjoy the famous, Rockbusters community spirit. Climbing with us is like climbing with friends - very resourceful, experienced friends, who have everything planned and focus on your climbing throughout the trip!
The trip is suitable for anyone starting with novices with basic climbing skills, such as belaying and tying on. Our team can accommodate every level, from beginners to pros. One-to-one coaching sessions and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere are a guarantee of an unforgettable, amazing trip.
If you’re a confident swimmer hungry for new experiences (strong sea legs also a plus ;) this trip is perfect for you.
