Mallorca island


Read in Telegram

Our set of Mallorca climbing programs here

Traditionally, Mallorca in winter has become a symbolic travel for me, without which the travelling season of the year would not have been complete. Summing up the results of the 2022 season, it would be sad to be left without the opportunity to talk about my trip to Majorca that I dreamed about during the mountain climbs of the summer and autumn. However, this did not happen - Mallorca 2022 took place and brought many positive emotions.

Three days ago, once again I said goodbye to the island. Moreover “thanks”. Because there is no other place like it in the world – for sure, all the destinations are different, no doubt, but Majorca is especially unique, if one can say so. By a combination of factors.

Rockclimbing and active vacations in Majorca

My visit to Mallorca in December 2022, I would not call so much sportive, most likely it was “recovery” or or just “active vacation”. We did rockclimbing quite a bit, mostly the easiest routes. This time there was no sport climbing at all. Well, okay. However, there were running along the seashore, gorgeous walks, beautiful excursions, new fantastic places and trails, unique landscapes – of all that it was an abundance.

Against the general black informational background of this year, the island of Majorca verbally conveys a simple idea, which, alas, has become a crime in Russia - the “kingdom of crooked mirrors” ... – to make life better to yourself, one should not do bad things to the others.

Read, look photos, try to catch the most valuable thing that I want to share - the sun, the sea, the wind, the rocks, the space. Which are the integral parts of the one whole – the Freedom...


It is hardly possible to convey in words the amazing atmosphere and palette of feelings that come to me with a leisurely calm communication with this place. This is the result of calming down of the attention, relaxing the bundle of the nerves – this is a special state when the feeling of crazy run of life disappears and you can quietly look around at the simplest and most beautiful things, not visible at the higher speed.

Why Majorca looks so attractive to me? What is there? I will try to formulate. First, the quintessence of this island is its tranquility. It is clear that in the modern world this is the most valuable thing that a person immersed in the boiling oil of a “civilized” existence can look for. The rhythm of the life of the island is unusual for us. Life flows slowly. In this slowness, there is a special meaning, critically important for those who feel how the vanity eats up the priceless moments of their lives. On the island, it's not like that. Here one can savor the time, catch the "elusive moment" in the splash of waves stretched out in seconds, in the unique play of sunset colors. In the details that are so elusive on if you speed up your life.

In the island the people live a little bit in the past, without losing touch with it. The rapidly changing modern world, forgot about tiny towns of Majorca, where behind the shutters of old houses with flowers on the windows and naively decorated facades, there is an atmosphere of a distant past, ancient traditions preserved for centuries.

The smell of the time does not leave these houses, warmed by the fire of hearths and the care of many generations. The narrow streets are saturated with a light rustle - it is not clear whether it is the fallen leaves of the trees under your feet, or just the light rhythm of provincial life walking along the worn rocks of the paved road...

Meetings of neighbors, conversations from window to window across the narrow street, old people sitting at the doors of their houses, kindly and curiously looking at the passers-by...

In these few lines – there is an attempt to describe the whole world, immersed in the global calm, the world that is logical, correct and unique, but fragile as a morning dream. Moreover, there is sad nostalgia for what we have lost in our world...

With all this, the world of the island is bright, diverse and fascinating. This world is not at all intrusive or vulgar - nothing catches your attention with aggressive baits here. Everything that can keep the focus of your attention – all that knows its price, does not rush into the eyes. It is like wine on St. Anthony's Night - free for everyone in any quantity. But no one walks around drunk.

At the same time, many features of Majorca are unique. Nature created this island for a quite and thoughtful contemplation, one might say so. Without fair colors and a booth. Everything here tends to gently lure and saturate with emotions that do not pass by quickly, but saturate the mind gently and delicately, making it possible to feel every detail...

Majorca is full of human history. Despite the outward calmness and tranquility, the island history has passed through all the main periods in the history of our civilization. This feature of Majorca cannot escape from the attentive observer. The island breathes out its history; this breath is palpable at any point.

The history of the island is not smeared or distorted by the modern trends and shameless lies of the politicians - it is what it is, just facts and events - everyone can relate and understand them the way he wants.

Rome, Carthage, the Caliphate, the Reconquista, the drama of relatively recent events in the history of Europe... And also that was here before all - the foggy mystery of the talaiots - all this artefacts of passed time can be found on the surface, accessible for contemplation and touch, surprisingly tangible and strangely elusive. Maybe the reason of that strange thing is because this small piece of land in the Mediterranean Sea, at the crossroads of our civilization, miraculously did not get into the cycle of modern progress, which passed nearby, but a little aside. Or maybe because of the fact, that the treasures of the island, none of them get into the trends of the modern greedy consumption.

This island is unique for its diverse atmosphere, which combines the amazing tranquility of life, clearly preserved historical charisma, deep, uniquely expressive landscapes.

The nature of the island is diverse, but at the same time very compact in its diversity. There is no need for long journeys or tiring approaches to experience completely different characters of the landscapes that change abruptly and unexpectedly. There is no need to make special efforts to feel the variety of impressions from the island. In the absence of special external brightness, any touch of the nature of Majorca opens up an unexpectedly wide range of perspectives that can be enjoyed almost endlessly.

I have already described the bonfires and the burning of devils at St. Anthony’s night in a separate story... However, my memory does not let it go. This holiday has a very special meaning for me. It is completely dissolved in the atmosphere of Mallorca and is inseparable from it. A holiday apart from any form of profanity and formatting for modern, castrated ways of entertainment. The night of St. Anthony is a miraculously preserved, real and living example of human openness, carelessness, the ability to rejoice and have fun sincerely, with an open heart. Such a holiday is possible only in the conditions and features of this amazing place, which I have just described.

That is small part of my impressions from the Mallorca island. Definitely, it is lively, calm and very positive place. Full of the bright, but not harsh or catchy expressiveness and charisma.

Our Principles

AlexClimb Rule #1 - Safety First

From the very beginning of our activity, here nearly 16 years, the first Principle of work of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb is the Safety Priority. On the basis of this Principle all process of training is based, all programs and rounds are developed and carried out only within this main principle. We consider that at professional approach to development of programs, at personal discipline and correctly put motivation - occupations by mountaineering and rock-climbing are COMPLETELY safe. And from the return - all troubles and accidents in our sport come from nonprofessionalism, from ignorance or neglect by elementary standards of safety, from irrational motivation, from revaluation of own forces and opportunities. All these prerequisites we COMPLETELY EXCLUDE in our work - ours Rock-climbing, Ice climbing and Mountaineering are based on one Principle - the Safety Priority. In rock-climbing, mountaineering and ice climbing, the Priority of Safety of MCS AlexClimb-is your personal security and comfort irrespective of, than we are engaged - we train muscles and we work technology of the movement in the sports hall and on the rock climbing wall, we make the way through snowstorm to top or we relax on golden sand of the Caribbean beach after hot day of trainings on rocks. The Safety priority - the main credo of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb.

AlexClimb Rule #2 - Leave No Trace

Closely interacting with Nature, working with the active programs in mountains, woods, lakes and rivers, we perfectly understand the importance of carefull and respectfull bahavior towards the Nature, for its resources. From the very beginning of our outdoor-activity we adopted rules of  Leave No Trace technique - the standard of behavior of the person accepted in all the civilized world in relation to environment and especially - to the wild nature. After all on the relation of people to the nature near which they exist, itself can draw dalekoidushchy conclusions on the relation of these people to... Where and as we didn't travel - we don't reserve any garbage, we try to reduce whenever possible our influence on environment to a minimum. We clear earlier zagryazyonny tourist parking of the left garbage, we take out and we take out to utilization places that to us other people left there. We consider that only thus, at personal individual consciousness of each citizen, each tourist, climber or autotraveller, we will be able to keep the nature surrounding us in its state, natural, suitable for life, - in it pledge of the healthy future for ourselves and our children.

AlexClimb Rule #3 - Sober Concious

The position of AlexClimb Mountain and rockclimbing School regarding healthy lifestyle is quite clear - we consider that only sober consciousness is capable to fill sincere emotions,  to sympathize, to enjoy life in all its variety. Bright various enjoyable life is possible only on condition of keeping the absolute sobriety and purity of consciousness. Any way of obscuring our perception of reality is intended to do harm to our consciousness and bring harm to our physical health, to replace the true values by false ones, to destroy us physically - to turn us into flabby, weak, senseless, gray herd with empty hazy eyes. We don't force anybody to our point of view, everyone has a God's gift of making his own choice and to destroy himself if that is what he wants... But in AlexCilimb Mountain Climbing School we accept quite certain and very simple set of rules: neither alcohol, nor drugs.
