Among Mallorca’s fragrant almond groves, famed nightclubs and speedo-sporting Eurotourists, limestone cliffs rise from the sea like sentinels, their steep pockets beckoning to climbers the world over.

Whether you know it as psicobloc, bouldering or deep water soloing, you’ve no doubt seen footage of ropeless climbers throwing for tufas twenty meters above the ocean. A fall means splashing into 80° water, drying off and trying again – from the bottom.

Some call it traditional climbing in its purest form. Others call it a hell of a way to spend a few weeks.

Last season, a small group of climbers traveled to those sea cliffs to learn the intricacies of deep water soloing and to try, unrehearsed, some of the hardest – and most aesthetic – routes in the world.

Now we’re bringing Perfecto to you. Don’t miss it. Check out http://www.perfectothemovie.com for more information, the trailer can be viewed here.
