Costa Blanca

Rosie and I are currently out in the Costa Blanca on holiday.  We arrived on Monday mid afternoon with a forecast of sun and temperatures between 26 and 30 degrees for the week.

On Tuesday we visited the Penon de Ifach where we climbed Via Valencianos. I have climbed a number of routes at this venue and all have been superb.

Rockfax have produced an excellent mini guide to the rock ridges of the Costa Blanca. We used this and the main guidebook on our visit to Sierra de Toix on Wednesday where we climbed the six pitch Cliber before traversing the skyline ridge.  This combination is worth an alpine grade of AD-.  After a quick break we enjoyed some of the excellent cragging that this venue has to offer.

Today, we visited the Echo Valley for some craggiing. This venue provides both Trad and Sport routes.
