We present two days of activities in Levante, most precisely in Costa Blanca, Alicant, going along the Bernia Ridge and the Valencianos route (250m, IV+) to Peñón de Ifach.
Without a doubt this is the way, looking for some continuity in achievable and exciting objectives, to achieve new challenges that until now seemed unreachable.
With a compact group, with a guide and a maximum of 2 participants, we will be able to adapt the programme and the routes to the capabilities of the rope team so we can enjoy at its best without compromising in security.
Alicant is the second most mountainous province of Spain due to its jagged orography, with many mountain ranges, cliffs and valleys.
Puig Campana, at 1.406m, is the second highest peak in the Alicant region. Its south face is the most famous and the one with more climbing routes.
The closest village is Finestrat, although the south face is visible from many towns like Benidorm.
In March 1966 the Espolón Central (450m, D+, IV + obligated) was first climbed by J. Roig, C. Torregrosa and M. Gascón, and it is considered one of the classics of this massif. It is worth mentioning in this route the quality of the rock and the attractive itinerary. Without a doubt, Espolón Central is the most representative climb of Puig Campana and one of the best in Comunidad Valenciana.
Peñón de Ifach is a calcarean monolith that emerges from the sea, imponent and that it doesn´t go without being noticed by Calpe´s visitors, climbers or not. Its 327m offer a great variety of climbing routes, all of them interesting and attractive.
We will be doing one of the classic routes, El Diedro UBSA (250m, MD, V obligated). It is one of the most obvious routes in the south face. First climbed by L. Rodríguez, J. Guerrero and P. Oliva in March 1977 and it is the great classic of the south face.
