/ Costa Blanca ridges and trad, recommendations ?
Does anyone have any recommendations/warnings or general feedback on options ? I have the first Rockfax ridge guide printed out. Looking for fairly long, not desperate, entertaining days out. I lead S [usually] happily and my partner is a lot more experienced. We will be taking basic trad rack and good head torches !
For something a bit different try the Barranco del infierno canyon descent, really cool day out.
The Bernia Ridge is excellent, mostly scrambling with one pitch of about 4/4+ which most folks would take a rope for. The Rockfax Ridge guide has a good description. Pick a good day for this as it's probably 7+ hours end to end. Sometimes the paint markings are a little faint but it's usually obvious which way to go.
Thanks. Saw the recent canyoneering thread. Lots of ideas.
What is the Via Ferrata like out there too ? Worth taking lanyards ?
Third recommendation for Espolon Central. I was out there in April and soloed it in perfect conditions and it may just be the best day i've ever had on rock.
Just be aware that the descent down through the choss and scree is absolutely desperate.
