Getting ThereFrom Alicante
Take the A7 highway to the Agost crossing, take the CV-805 secondary road until we find a little road on the left that lead us to the Alicante Balcony. 1 or 2 kilometers before this point, in a left curve, we find a forest road closed by a chain with a no entry traffic sign, this is our starting/ending point.
Route DescriptionFollow this forest road over 15’ until we find a little and quite invisible path on the left (I seem to remember that coincide with another path on the right side), take it and walk among the bush, always in direction to the wall. Once you have arrived, look for an old vertical wire to help us climbing the wall. I DON’T RECOMMEND TO USE IT, THE WIRE IS WRONG ANCHORED and besides, it’s not necessary (III) (photo). If we look back, we see the curious silhouette of the Sierra del Cid with its two summits (photo). Following the track, there is another wire, this one horizontal and better anchored, to cross a rock slope (photo). From here, we’ll reach the summit looking for the best route between the adhesive rock.
The descent, we’ll make it by the “normal” route to the Alicante balcony (East direction). Once we have arrived there, we’ll take the asphalted road to the car.
Essential GearComfortable shoes/clothing
Hat/cap, especially in summer
Water (There is no water around the route)
