The Mediterranean island of Mallorca is now well-known as a sport climbing destination and it has also established itself as the home of Europe's best deep water soloing. The main guidebook to the climbing on the island for the last 20 years has been published by Rockfax, and the new 2016 edition of Spain: Mallorca adds to this legacy with another blockbusting volume for the sun-seeking climber. The sport climbing is written by Alan James and Mark Glaister, and the deep water soloing section is written by Daimon Beail.
