upper: from Palma take the road no. C-711 heading towards Soller and after 12 km turn left towards Valdemossa, onto the PM-111; pass over the village of Valdemossa and take the road no. C-710 towards Esporles. After about 300 meters, on the right, take the road to Marina di Valdemossa and after 1 km more park the car near the hamlet of Son Mas, after an evident bend on the left, near a bridge over the river bed.
lower: go on towards Marina di Valdemossa, and park the car near the quays.

Approach: come back from the parking si until the bridge and enter into the uninviting river bed. The quite dirty initial part leads to the first short descent on rope.

Coming back: after the last rope descent the gorge ends; in a few minutes of walk along the bed, reach a very big block inside the bed where there is a path on the right bank leading onto the asphalted road.
