Located in the central massif of the Picos de Europa, in Asturias, Naranjo de Bulnes is a limestone rock mountain of 2519 meters high. It is considered an emblematic summit for Spanish mountaineering.
It has a 500-meter vertical wall on its west face that implies a challenge for the bravest. All climbing routes require at least a basic level of training and some technical knowledge.
Also known as Pico de Urriello, this mountain can be climbed by its four faces while the most famous descent route is in the south side (vía Sur Directa). There are also other descent lines on the west slope, by the Sagittarius and Murciana routes, and by the Hawaii route, although it requires more technical experience. The southern face is the most difficult and it is essential to have a vast knowledge of the terrain.
The climate is humid since the area receives a lot of rain and snow annually. The months of June and July are the driest and the winter months are the wettest.
During the European Summer.
Spanish is the official language. The Asturian is also a traditional language in the region, although it is little used.
