On this 2-day Naranjo de Bulnes (2519 meters) south face ascent, we will climb its most popular route: La Directa de los Martinez. 

Naranjo de Bulnes, also known as the Pico de Urriellu is located in Picos de Europa National Park, and is one of the most famous Spanish mountains.

This majestic rock giant has four faces but on this 2-day guided ascent we will choose to climb its south face through one of the easiest routes to the summit.

It was in 1944 that Juan Tomás and Alonso Martínez reached the summit of Naranjo de Bulnes for the first time the summit and made it possible for intermediate climbers to reach the top of one of Spain’s iconic mountains.

With a maximum grade of IV, this south side expedition is ideal for climbers who have some previous mountaineering experience and are ready for a new challenge.

During our 2-day guided ascent we will spend one night at the Urriellu hut in order to make it to the summit in the best possible way!

If you want to join me on this 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.
