Follow me on this 2-day Naranjo de Bulnes ascent (2519 meters) via the Cepeda route and climb one of Spain’s iconic mountains!

Located in Picos de Europa National Park, Naranjo de Bulnes is one of the most popular mountains in Spain. Also known as the Pico de Urriellu, this peak is located in the Principality of Asturias.

Naranjo de Bulnes has four faces but on this 2-day guided ascent we will climb its east face via our chosen route.

The Cepeda Route was climbed by the first time by Jaime Cepeda, together with Jesús Aldecoa and Pedro Udaondo. On September 21, 1955, these Spanish climbers made it to the top, creating a new way of reaching this majestic mountain’s summit.

With a maximum grade of V+, this east side expedition is suitable for intermediate climbers who are in great physical condition and are looking for more demanding challenges!

If you want to join me on this 2-day guided two-day ascent, request to book this trip!

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.
