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.

Overview[edit]

Es Pontàs is the recurring theme of the film King Lines, featuring Chris Sharma's first ascent of the hardest deep water solo (9?) climb in the world.[1][2] The route has since been repeated by Jernei Kruder and Jan Hojer respectively.[3]
