In this video, Norwegian Magnus Midtbo practices deep water soloing in wintry conditions, i.e. he climbs rope-free over the water.
Mallorca is the deep water soloing Mecca par excellence. Sun, sea, sandy beaches and the most ingenious climbing on cliffs attract thousands of climbers to the Spanish island every year. Magnus Midtbo recently took a different approach.
In the winter months he climbed the cliffs of a lake - at least equipped with a neoprene suit. Nevertheless, the action is not for warm showerers.
