Jukka AhonenHiked, not climbed
Date Climbed: Jan 24, 2012

I was planning to climb Diedro UBSA (5+) with five of my friends (three 2 person rope teams, that is). We got to the foot the of the rock at sunrise, but unfortuntely for me the progress of the first two teams was too slow, and my team had to abort the climb. We hiked to the top instead, and my estimate in terms of time turned out to be correct: the second team reached the top with the very last rays of sunlight, and had to descend the path in total darkness. Oh well, there's always next year!

Being a climber, there is no way but climbing the Peñon de Ifach once you have seen it. We climbed it on a sunny afternoon just before Christmas. Topped the Valencianos without problems (although a little bit too slippery to my opinion) and were lucky to see a beautiful sunset, followed by an easy descent under a full moon.

This cliff has it all!

We did this great route on a clear day, during a week-long stay in the area. I think this is the easiest route on the crag, not sure.
Will try to look out some photos.

It was a very nice climb but a little bit dangerous because the rain fell in the middle of climb. The sun shined after that but after tunnel the rock was weddy. It's not advisable the climb with rain but the Peñón de Ifach is a very nice peak.

Varis and me entered in the route at 10h00am, already 2 cords above us... after some bottle necks that ralentized our climbing, we finalized this beautiful and varied route at 16h00. Lot of climbers... seagulls... impressive views and emotions !

Multipitch bolted route. Awsome!!!. Since the third pitch the verticality is absolute. There is a 7a pitch, I couldn't do it but it worth it at all!

Climbed this fun chunk of limestone the day before Christmas. Wasn't too crowded or too cold. Our first time climbing anything of significant size on limestone, so it was a fun new experience for us after all that California and Norwegian granite. I never understood the term 'polish' until climbing an old limestone route such as this one. We could see our reflection is some places!

Later hiked up to the top with some friends, just a great place to get up above the crowds.
