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

Via Ferrata Monte Ponoch (VF4A)

 

Climbed in 2015, brilliant.

Closed 2016 but seems to have been re-equipped in 2017 from logbook comments.

Walk in can be confusing, we were guided by David Mora, who was great.

Took about 2 hours up and down.

Big noticeboard at the carpark. Follow intermittant yellow paint/faint path to the start.

Did this about 5 times in Jan.

Once you find the carpark, you can see the VF on the cliff not far away.

Brand new after refurbishment.

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.

Yes: El Cid near Alicante is awesome, but more a mountaineering expedition.

Up north nearer Valencia, LesMarujes is very good, shorter but quite exciting!

Have fun!

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.
