    On this adventure, I would like to guide you to the top of the majestic Naranjo de Bulnes mountain (2,519m) by way of its most challenging routes, the east or north faces.

    Taking the north or east faces to the summit of the Naranjo de Bulnes is exclusive to those climbers who are determined to push themselves. This is the trip you take if you are looking for that next great challenge. The ascent will be arduous and difficult. However, the rewards you will get in the form of the grandiose views will make the difficulty absolutely worth it.

    Needless to say when climbing the most difficult faces on one of the most famous mountains in Spain, you should have some previous climbing experience. It is also crucial that you are in good enough physical condition to handle the rigors of the climb.

    There is a shelter that we can stop in during the climb, where you can enjoy a meal and even sleep for the night. That shelter is the Delgado Ubeda refuge.

    A mighty mountain, the Naranjo de Bulnes stands tall in the mythical Picos de Europa. There is something incredible about standing atop a mountain that sailors centuries earlier would spot with relief and glory, knowing they had finally reached Europe.

    Do you want to really challenge yourself on a famed mountain? Then send me a request and join me to the top of the Naranjo de Bulnes by way of its north or east faces. I know you’ll have the time of your life.

    I can also guide you to the summit of this wonderful peak by way of its its easier, more direct south face route.

    About the Guide


    My name is Picus Mazarredo and I am a sports technician in high mountain and sports technician in Climbing.

    My passion has always been the mountain, as a child I remember the walks through the Pyrenees as something that has marked my life.
    Trekking, snowshoeing and especially climbing, making ridges or ferratas is what I like the most and that is why I decided to make it my profession.

    Since these studies did not exist in Valencia, I had to go out and look for them. This led me to study the Certificate of Initiation to the Mountain in Barcelona and later the Sports Technician of Media Mountain in Benasque where I stayed for a few years working as a guide in the Pyrenees.
    Later I studied the Sports Technician in Climbing and I am currently studying with the Superior Sports Technician in Climbing.
