/ Ponoch via ferrata, Costa Blanca
Anybody done this?
Is it easy to find, in good repair?
How long to get up and down it?
Any other vfs in the area?
Thanks for any info
Big noticeboard at the carpark. Follow intermittant yellow paint/faint path to the start.
Did this about 5 times in Jan.
> Is it easy to find, in good repair?
Once you find the carpark, you can see the VF on the cliff not far away.
Brand new after refurbishment.
> How long to get up and down it?
25 mins -ish walk from carpark to start.
45 mins-1 hour to climb. 1 hour total to: walk across to the two abseils, do both abseils (1st 25m, 2nd 30m), and walk back to start of VF. So a 2 hour circuit, after which you can climb and abseil again. That's how I did so many
Or just walk back to carpark in 20 mins or so.
> Any other vfs in the area?
Yes: El Cid near Alicante is awesome, but more a mountaineering expedition.
Up north nearer Valencia, LesMarujes is very good, shorter but quite exciting!
Info here about Ponoch and other VF's in the region: http://www.mountain-journeys.co.uk/via-ferrata.html
Yes Ponoch is in good condition and quite straightforward to find.
It's fun, enjoy.
Thanks for all the info that's all our rest days sorted ;9)
