I can’t say enough about our family’s Deep Water climbing trip w/ Majorca Climbing Camps. Mallorca is definitely a destination spot for climbers and Amos Whiting tailored the trip to meet our every expectation. As a parent with young adult climbers it is paramount that they attend a climbing camp that has a safe environment, develops climbing skills, safety skills and challenges each climber. Amos is a great instructor and internationally certified in Rock, Alpine and Ski mountaineering. His knowledge of Mallorca placed us on the right rock every day to fit our climbing abilities and then he motivated us to challenge ourselves and improve our climbing skills, on a trip of a lifetime for which I will always be grateful .
On the days off I appreciated the camps’ assistance in partaking in all that Mallorca has to offer, especially the incredible cycling and beaches.
Thanks Amos, we look forward to other climbing adventures in Europe and can’t wait to climb in Mallorca again.

Although I had rock climbed at a relatively high level for the past 35 years, I had no previous experience with deep water soloing. Given the variables involved, it only made sense to get some instruction prior to engaging in this new and highly specialized discipline. Amos quickly brought me up to speed over the course of a three day intro, and was especially skillful in working with the limitations imposed by my severely tweaked knee. He saved me a lot of time, effort, and wear and tear on my body. I spent the next four weeks honing and refining the skills he taught me. If you are planning a trip to Majorca and you are new to deep water soloing I highly recommend that you spend a couple of day with Amos. It’s well worth the investment.

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.
