Deep Water Soloing

Sadly, I am not into adventure sports. Actually, I am not all that much into sports per se. I do admire, however, guys like Simon Mautes or Dieter Breuer who, with their wives and partners, sometimes even with their children, undertake hikes, walks or climbs that I would not dream of tackling. Like, the other day Simon did some Deep Water Soloing in Cala Sa Nau, not far from Felanitx. He climbed three or four different routes in that area, always starting out from the water, and he managed to not fall into the water once when climbing up.

When I showed some of the photos that Simon’s girlfriend Pia had taken, to my son he exclaimed, Oh, I’ve done that. Well, I never. I knew that he had been into Rock Climbing quite a bit, but, I never knew that he had also done rock faces where the climb starts from the water and the rock faces or overhangs the water.

There is so much I don’t know about Mallorca and so much more to discover. It’s just fantastic. Okay, there may be a few bits that I don’t know about my son either, but, that’s alright too.

If you are into Rock Climbing or even Deep Water Soloing, Rockfax has published a 2011 edition of the ultimate Sport Climbing manual for Mallorca. The book retails in Spain for 29 € and in the UK for £ 24.95. Rockfax.com also does an excellent website on the subject.

The photo was borrowed from my friend Pia Seger. The photo was taken in Cala Sa Nau, November 9th, 2011. The time was 14:19:22.

Vielen Dank.
