Multi-activity – Costa Blanca

Nearing the end of their week here and I think now feeling suitably 'refreshed', Allan & Kim may have experienced fairly mixed weather, but there's been plenty of T-shirt and shades time and we've managed to get out loads 🙂

An afternoon at Toix far Oeste kick-started the week, getting a feel for the sharp Limestone of Costa Blanca and things to come. Next up was the mighty Ponoch, climbing its Via Ferrata, enjoying amazing views over to the Bernia ridge then abseiling back down. Coffee and cake treats at Coll de Rates on the way home rounded off another fine day.

Ridge scrambling was next up. The Toix Integral. Starting on the Toix Este crags we climbed a 130m route before joining the narrow crest up to the Mirador in time for lunch. A short walk led us to the main Toix crags with 3 pitches taking us up to the ridge and 2 pitches along the knife edge crest! Easy, but exposed scrambling remains. Happy faces all round 🙂

Another day of contrast coming up. We climbed Sonjannika on the Morro Falqui sea cliffs. This 180m route up the magnificent south face is indeed a stunning line, weaving its way up some Improbable terrain. We went for an alternate finish this time, scrambling along ledges to reach the super fun 'Coming out' route as our way of topping out.

A fun and diverse week, now for some rest.....
