Description: Peppoli e Pepino is a beautiful via ferrata considered one of the best via ferrata in Valencia and also one of the best top 50 vias ferratas in Spain. It is a very unique via ferrata due to its lack of safety line that requires climbing techniques to climb it. Peppoli e Pepino is a very physical route with overhanging sections, tiny metal supports and run outs between them. It as a wood bench in the second pitch where you can rest, belay and enjoy the views to the canyon.
Difficulty: High, with some overhanging sections. Definitely not for beginners and also take into account that requires sport climbing techniques to climb it due to its lack of safety line.
Approach: 50min from the village parking lot, following the new trail next to the canyon that crosses the new three bridges. 15min from the Loriguilla dam parking lot (2 car plan or rappel)
High: ~80m. 3 anchors, 1st at 25m, 2nd at 50 (wood bench) and 3rd at 80m, the end.
Return: Hike to the parking lot at the village ~45min. Be carful if you want to rappel because is overhanging.
Material: All material required for climbing multi-pitch sport climbing routes. This route does not have safety line and requires sport climbing techniques to climb it. Always wear helmet.
