Ascent Trip Report

The military exclusion zone makes Puig Mayor an awkward, and rather unsatisfying, proposition. I parked in the pull in at km 37.55 on the road from Soller to Lluc and walked up the old stone zigzag path through Coma de n'Arbona. This joins the military road at a bend well above the lower gatehouse. I walked up the road, waving to the first truck approaching. The officer being driven told me I could go as far as the hairpin connecting to the Migdia ridge, but no further. A second officer in a jeep gave me the same instructions and advised me not to try to reach the Penyal de Migdia itself by this route. Consequently, I reached around 1350m on the edge of the military zone and 1378m at the adjacent peak on the ridge before returning by the same route.
