Naranjo de Bulnes (Picu Urriellu in the older local language of Asturian) is an imperious limestone peak in northern Spain. Located within the beautiful Picos de Europa National Park, it is part of the greater Cantabrian Mountain Range.

Situated 20km from the coast and almost equally between Gijon and Santander (70km from both), it is a stunningly beautiful setting for rock climbing with fantastic views over the surrounding landscape.

The first day of the trip we will travel to the charming village of Sotres (1045m), the highest settlement in the Picos de Europa National Park and we will spend the night in a hostel there.

We will start climbing on the second day. We will start with via Victor (200m, UIAA grade V), one of the most historic routes on the south side of the mountain. Next, we will move on to Directa de los Martinez (200m, UIAA grade IV+). Less steep climbs include Amistad con el Diablo (360m, 6a) and Cepeda 350m, UIAA grade V).

After a full day of climbing in the wilderness, we will return to the hostel in Sotres to spend the night again. On the third day, we’ll retrace our steps for the descent down to our vehicles. All climbs will be enjoyed in a beautiful alpine setting, in a fun and enthusiastic atmosphere.

After 20 years of rock climbing and alpine expeditions I still have the same passion as the first day, sign up now and let me share this enthusiasm with you in the magical setting of Naranjo de Bulnes!

If this trip excites you then check out this 3-day rock climbing extravaganza and join me in the gorgeous El Chorro, near Malaga in the south of Spain. If you would prefer some scrambling fun then sign up here to join me in the mountains of Alicante for a great adventure!

About the guide

guide profile img

Hi! My name is Dani, I'm an AEGM rock climbing guide from Spain, the second country with more mountains in Europe.

After 20 years practicing alpinism and climbing in mountain ranges around the world, I established in central Spain. I work as a guide in one of the most wild and spectacular rocky spots: Pedriza and Sierra de Gredos. These were the mountains that made me become the climber that I'm today.

Recently someone asked me what do I like the most about my job. I struggled to find an answer, but I think that when you do an activity with professionalism, safety, and managing the risks, the rest is assured! Laughs, emotions and great moments: Mountains and climbing at it most.
