Visible from nearly all points on the Costa Blanca the elongated skyline of the Bernia Ridge presents a much-admired backdrop to the flat, calm waters of the Mediterranean. The ridge itself gets its name from its highest point at its inland extremity, however, the extent of the ridge can actually be traced virtually all the way down to sea level. The most impressive section is the gently undulating 2km section that extends seaward from the summit of the Bernia (1126m) and has become a beacon for climbers and serious scramblers. The whole of the section described here is at an altitude of around 1000m. It provides a fabulous, airy outing although, for some, the normal route along the ridge will be a little disappointing, as a number of the summits are bypassed via easy passages. One short section of the ridge has a passage of 4c although this is easily aided on the closely spaced bolts. Route finding is relatively easy, as the way is marked with painted dots at regularly intervals.
