The Morro Lechugales is one of the most classic mountains of Picos de Europa, and this is your chance to reach its summit with an expert guide. Join me for a stunning mountaineering day!

The Picos de Europa, part of the Cantabrian Mountains, are a 20km mountain chain located on the northern coast of Spain. It encompasses three major massifs: Central (“Los Urrieles”), Eastern (“Ándara”) and Western (“Picos de Cornión”).

This mountaineering adventure will take us to the summit of Morra de Lechugales (2,444m), the highest peak of the Andara Massif. We will meet at Jito de Escarandi (also known as Alto de Sotres), a 1,291m mountain pass, and head up the most common route which traverses the northern side of the mountain.

This is a fun ascent requiring a good fitness level and a short rock climbing section (III to IV level). At the top, we will enjoy spectacular views of the Liebana region, the Duje valley, the Cantabrian peaks, and the impressive plains of Castilla and Leon.

So, if you are up for an awesome mountaineering day trip in Spain, please contact me. Let me take you to the top of Morra de Lechugales!

About the guide

AEGM-UIMLA Guide from Spain

I did my first steps as a mountaineer as a teenager in Madrid. But the desire to enjoy all the possibilities given by the mountains convinced me to move to Benasque valley, at the heart of the Pyrenees.

Along the years I did several winter and summer activities not only in the Pyrenees, but also in Picos de Europa, Sierra Nevada, Sistema Central...

One of my passions is to travel and discover new places and cultures, so I did climbing trips to other European countries, USA, Canada, Morocco, India, Nepal, Kirguistán... This trips gave me a priceless experience that made me grow as a climber, and set the stone to my formation as professional mountain guide.

I now live in Cantabria, and usually guide both in summer and winter in the Cantabrian range.
