Ojo de pez – Ponoig

On January 2nd, Laurens and me have climbed a route called Ojo de Pez on the southeast wall of the Ponoig, a limestone peak close to Benidorm. Perfect weather & conditions made up for a great day out. The climbing was technical and crimpy for the first 7 pitches, but it steepened up after, with bigger holds. Especially the 11th pitch is lovely, big hueco’s in an overhang, an ideal cooling-down (and desperately needed, since I ruined my toes). Only in the second pitch (6c+) you need to place gear, the rest can be almost done without.┬áDuring the descent our rope got stuck, so we had to climb back and endend up doing the last abseil in the dark. Fortunately, we could find the path, which lead us back directly to the parking spot we our day started.. Nice adventure!
