Es Pontàs ("The big bridge" in Catalan language) is a natural arch in the southeastern part of the island of Mallorca.[1] The arch is located on the coastline between the Cala Santanyí and Cala Llombards in the municipality of Santanyí.

Climbing[edit]

Es Pontàs is the focus of the 2007 film King Lines, featuring American climber Chris Sharma's first ascent of the hardest deep water solo climb in the world at that time, called Es Pontas [fr] graded 9a+ (5.15a).[1][2] The route has since been repeated by Jernej Kruder and Jan Hojer.[3]
