That´s the Penyó del Diví in the background. You´d think it meant ” Divine Peak” or something like it, but in fact a ” Diví” in Valencian is a fortune-teller, seer, even magician. So I like to think the best translation is ” The Magician´s Mountain”. But I stand to be corrected.

It´s a splendid chunk of rock with  trad climbing routes and some recently added bolted routes. As a walk, there are various tracks up from the Barranc del Arc, past the climbers´ refuge, but the top tip is to drive up toward Tudons, turn on the hairpin into the Tagarina valley, drive 5 km up to the end of the asphalt ( Font de Pouet Alemany) and then walk the remaining 40 minutes to the summit.(you´ll know you´re on the right track when you pass the abandoned dove-cote…)

The newer routes, bolted by Rich from the Orange House, are accessible from the first ruin on this walk.
