Naranjo de Bulnes (2,519 m), or Picu Urriellu is the most representative mountain in the Picos de Europa, mountain range.

This colossal limestone peak is located in the Central Massif, in Asturias, SpainJoin me on this guided ascent via the South Face. Due to the location of this route, it is a fairly straight ascent. Hence it is the easiest, fastest and most accessible route to the top of Picu. Also, there are rappelling areas available in both sides of the normal route.

The itinerary I recommend departs from the refuge, taking the road that leads us to the Celada Canal, just under the North Face of Naranjo de Bulnes. Thereupon, the trekking ahead is pretty relaxed until the bivouac shelters’ area at the South Face. Then we’ll put on a helmet and start climbing through a series of steps following our route, with five different sections.

The first one is short but with a Vº pass at the initial part. Then, the second section begins with an easy path, followed by a straight road that will lead us to the third section. After completing the third part, culminating in a area with parabolts and a chain, we’ll begin the fourth section of our ascent, with holes, fairways and a IV+ pass. Finally we’ll reach the fifth and last section of about 40 meters.

And once we reach the summit of Naranjo de Bulnes, we will get the absolutely most mesmerizing views of Picos de Europa.

If you want to join this amazing mountaineering adventure, send me a request. I promise it will be an unforgettable trip.
