Today we’ll meet either at Arenas de Cabrales (Asturias) or Potes (Cantabria) to hike up to Julián Delgado Ubeda Refuge (also known as Vega Urriellu), a comfy mountain hut with nearly 100 places, situated directly below the famous 500m west face of Naranjo de Bulnes.
Today we will follow one of the remarkable routes to Naranjo de Bulnes summit. From the top, we will enjoy a spectacular view of peaks emerging among the sea of clouds, capturing mental images you will never forget. If the weather is good, you may also get to see the Cantabric Sea.
Arenas de Cabrales, Asturias, Spain.
Equipment list: climbing shoes (we can help you if there is anything that you need).
Born in a climbing family it was a matter of time for me to fall deeply in love with anything that had to do with rock climbing, ranging from bouldering to big walls and specially trad climbing, enjoying every single aspect of this beautiful sport that I live as a lifestyle. I began climbing at an early age with my brother in La Pedriza, a huge granite range with 4000+ routes close to our home in the nearby mountains in Madrid. Known mainly for its bold slab climbing, features world class climbs on sort of styles: cracks, overhanging walls, multi-pitch, aid... all gathered in these iconic climbing paradise.
I soon began to travel throughout Europe and the US, exploring also Morocco, Turkey or Madagascar, not only for climbing or putting up new routes, but also to experience different cultures and getting to know wonderful people all around the world.
It's been five years since I decided to turn my passion into a career. In this time I have combined working 2 years as the specialist for climbing matters in the Sierra de Guadarrama National Park with training Rock Guide aspirants at CFEM, one of the spanish certified Rock Guiding Teaching Centers. I also had time to enjoy teaching and training people at the climbing wall, learning a lot from every one of my trainees. And of course, I had time for guiding people on the most beautiful climbs, making people dreams come true and making sure the time we spend together becomes unique.
Nowadays I run a small guiding company called Compañía de Guías de la Zona Centro with my two partners Dani and Aitor, nestled at Manzanares El Real, the entrance gate to La Pedriza. From there we're happy to share all the possibilities that this region has to offer, ranging from hiking, through skiing and alpine climbing, to rock climbing and canyoning.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
