/ Bernia ridge, costa blanca
There's really only one pitch of climbing "proper". It's a traverse along a ridge with a bolt every two feet - you won't need to clip them all, I'm sure, so 3 or 4 quickdraws should be fine. Apart from that I only recall a few equipped abseils and a great deal of enjoyment and great views.
Thats spot on.
All new fixed gear and more appearing everytime I have done it.
Only one abseil essential ( I have not found a way past it yet ) , about 15-20 m so 40m rope required.
Hardest pitch 4+ I think and OK in trainers or you can pull on a draw or two.
Most folk go East to West. Best day out is full ridge traversing E + W summits. 5 hours round trip from the Cafe at a steady pace if you are finding the climbing easy. Allow 8 if you are nervous. Route finding is easy if you spot the red paint.
Ryan Glass website has a fuller description, but you dont really need any more info than on this post, apart from finding the easy way off the West Summit.
Just out of interest did you solo the scramble sections or move together ?
Worth having a bit of tat as the bolts on the 2nd abseil aren't the best (that was the case in january), so could back it up if needs be.

Have a great time.
