In the final episode of La Isla Bonita the filmmakers are taking you back to basics and showing exactly what goes into creating and protecting the routes that we all love to watch people climb. That's right: they are giving you a behind the scenes look at the passion and pain of the route bolter - the guy who climbs up with drill and hammer and tries to envision how climbers might one day want to move over the blank rock. We're heading to a new section of crag in Majorca where Jozua Janssen and Javier Marin are hard at work drilling and hammering what they hope will one day be classic routes to add to the island's already legendary reputation for climbing. It's slow and tedious work, but it's definitely worth it. Here's How You Bolt a Classic Sport Climbing Route | La Isla Bonita, Ep. 5

Mallorca is one of the most beautiful, exotic climbing places in Europe. It is la Isla Bonita, a small paradise, a spectacular place that will capture you and keep you returning, time and time again. In this series, we will highlight some of the newest, greatest and unknown climbing locations of Mallorca. Until now, much of the origins of climbing in Mallorca have remained a mystery - La Isla Bonita intends to change that! In addition to highlighting the best routes on the island, we'll also provide an insight into the characters who pioneered all of the beautiful climbing on offer in Mallorca. They'll reveal to us a bit of the history of the best climbs on the island - how they started and how they protect these new venues. Stay tuned for multi-pitch, sport climbing and bouldering!
