  • In the September 2017, I have undertaken this hike with a friend. We parked our car in the public parking lot in Valldemossa not far away is the starting point of the hike. It is located at the end of Carrer Oliveres. The coordinates are 39 ° 42' 50.6 "N 2 ° 37' 18.1" E. In beautiful weather and around 25 degrees, we reached the "Pinnacle" and thus the Archduke way after about 2 hours. The way up to here is some tight uphill and everywhere are rough stones on the way. Sturdy footwear is absolute duty and you should be very careful, where order not to bend and to hurt. The climb is finally but also for inexperienced hikers as we are feasible, provided guests bring a certain basic fitness and condition. There are other hikers only sporadically. That is already extraordinary for Mallorca and are almost alone in nature to be a very special feeling. During the ascent, we sometimes had difficulties with the pathing. The signs were not immediately to see. When Gates arrived with numerous warnings, we were not sure whether we were allowed to go forward. Because there is no alternative way was evident, we have continued the hike just. Once at the top is first relieved to have made the ascent and overwhelmed by the magnificent view on the coast and in the Interior of the country. In the distance, we could see even the Cathedral of Palma. The Summit path is well preserved and can be easily run in about 1.5 hours. The serpentinenhafte descent, however, was an ordeal and not memorable. The piece was also forever in the length. Until we were back in Valldemossa again 2 hours have passed. The hike is natural for all and abenteuerbegeisteren travellers to recommend for someone who is a stair climb out of breath, the hike is not recommended, because you need something on condition for the rise. The all-round view compensated for all efforts.
