My wife Makiko and I decided to do something special for our 15th wedding anniversary and Deep Water Soloing with Amos in Mallorca was the perfect choice. Our only regret is that after 20 years of climbing it took us this long to discover it.
Mallorca is the ideal couple and family destination. Beautiful beaches, blue skies, perfect weather, romantic sunsets, great food, good salsa dancing, and a wonderful Mediterranean feel to it provide the background for a unique climbing experience.
Amos has an outstanding progression sequence so that even the most timid climber capable of top roping a 5.10b or that 8a climbing stud can feel at ease sending a 50ft DWS route. You start easy and work yourself up. By knowing the climbing areas intimately, providing coaching, and leading by example, pretty soon you are either walking off the top after a successful climb, or safely getting airtime into the water. This is definitely something you want to do with that significant other. It’s hard to describe how incredibly rewarding it was to see each of us push the limits and climb free, un-roped, within sight of each other, yelling encouragement at the top of our lungs, and laughing or gasping with the splashdowns. Then, as the climbing day was over, there were all those other things in life available to make it a memorable experience
We will be back again this year, and this time we will bring the kids.
