Climb Description

Es Grau begins from just to the north of Puigpunyent, in the southern part of the Tramuntana Mountains. It follows the Ma-1101 heading north in the direction of Esporles.

It is a really nice climb to do, with beautiful arable countryside gradually changing into a series of short, sharp hairpin bends in a forested section. From the top of the climb the descent towards Esporles is fantastic, passing alongside vineyards and fields full of almond trees.

Es grau is open throughout the year.

Roads & Traffic

The road surface is in very good condition, but it is narrow and care should be taken, particularly on the tight hairping bends.

There is little traffic on the climb.




Alternative Routes
