Polvos Magicos is a more direct line sharing sections of the route Via Valencianos, using the same first pitch but generally staying more straight up or to the right.
1. Same start as Valencianos.
2. Where Valencianos moves left on the second pitch Polvos Magicos goes straight up the steep bolted face and slippery corner (crux).  
3. The route then moves right to attain the long and massive dihedral at the right side of the Valencianos slab.  
4 & 5. Follow the steep and exposed corner in two more pitches to the ridge.  
6. Climb a groove in the ridge.
7 & 8. Join the finish of Valencianos.


As for Valencianos on the South Face of the Penon.  The massive dihedral is readily visible on the approach from Calpe.


Full rack, some fixed sections.
