One of the best-known rock-features of the Costa Blanca is the long slender ridge of Espolón Central which dominates the vast South Face of the Puig Campana. Although the climbing is relatively easy, the route shouldn't be underestimated since route-finding can be tricky, and the length of the climbing makes for a very tiring day with descents in darkness not uncommon.
