Approach


Right From the C710 Sóller-Pollensa, just past Lluc, you have to exit at KM 17,4 in direction to "Binifaldo - Menut". The road will take you after a long winding road to the bottling plant Binifaldo. At the parking place there, you'll notice a big wooden sign "Font". At the right side of the green metal gate to the bottling plant itself is whole in the fence and that's exactly where the trail starts.

Route Description


The trail takes you along the fence through the forest to a turn to the right, which is marked with red markings on rocks and stone cairns. Keep on following these markings along the serpentines. Eventually you'll leave the forest, cross the scree slopes and will find yourself on a rather steep trail over rocks, which is safeguarded at two points by fixed ropes (climbing III-). After 50 minutes or so you'll reach a saddle at 1.050m, where you'll have to turn left, NNE. At first, the trail will remain below the ridge but on the last third it will be on top of the summit ridge. Be aware of the rather huge 300m drop on your left, particularly during bad weather. The Tomir itself is marked with big pole, so you'll know when you are there.

Essential Gear


Usual hiking gear is required, additionally some water, a compass and map.
