Sa Galera – 29 October

Sa Galera is the most northerly summit on the Es Teix massif with outstanding views of the coast from Deia to Port de Soller although the last time we were there, in 2009, we were chased all the way back to Soller by a storm. In the process we lost the path or found the wrong one on the final descent and had to climb in and out of gardens and all sorts. This is something Pauline isn’t keen to repeat so this will be an out and back, passing Es Teix both ways because it remained under heavy clouds but visiting a couple of other summits along the ridge between them.
