Tomo Thompson tells the story of his seven year quest to tackle on the the Costa Blanca's most impressive limestone ridges...
"Eyes fuzzed with the focus, brains hurt with the concentration of reading every centimeter of the ground, of testing the stability of the rock and then having to commit body weight to loose stuff. It's all there was..."
Hi Steve. If you go the right way, it's not always obvious, never harder than 6a. On the harder bits there is usually gear like bolts, pegs and threads. It's not really the tech difficulty of the ridge more the seriousness of the looser sections which makes it more stressful.
