A lazy week in the sun in Mallorca gave us the opportunity to finally do the Serra Del Cavall Bernat Ridge which rises out of the Boquer valley to a maximum of only 353m but on it's seaward side, the ridge is near vertical into the sea, which is quite impressive as you reach the col to the right of an obvious "window" at 261m and look straight over and down to the sea!
Looking up at the first rock tower which can be climbed by almost any line making it as easy or difficult as you like, although there is a bigger drop the further right you go! Not sure what the grade is meant to be but there's lines to suit all and probably never over grade II max? (unless you stray out over the seaward side - not recommended!).
The view to the end of the Boquer valley with the Cap Formentor just visible in the distance.
Pleasant scrambling on very grippy,and sometimes very sharp, rock leads to the top of the first tower.
The first "window" on the ridge with views down to Cala de Sant Vicenc.
Looking back at the route over the "window" after we looked through it!
The wrong way down!
Looking back across the ridge again, just before we got to the second window.
Lorna on top of the second window, which can't be seen from below in the valley.
Lorna almost the high point, Talaia Vella at 353m!
This is a photo I took last year from the Cala de Sant Vicenc side. You can just see the first window that we crossed to the right of centre of the picture.
