Highlights

 
     
    Resting within the famous Picos de Europa in Asturias, Spain, the Naranjo de Bulnes (2,519m) is a fantastic mountain.

    Definitely one of the most famous peaks in all of Spain, the Naranjo de Bulnes (or the Picu Urriellu as known in Asturian) is a highlight of the Cantabrian mountain range. And on this trip that can easily stretch into two exciting, scenic days, we will scale the mountain along its South face. The South face is the easiest route to reach the the top of this great mountain. However, because of the peak’s unique shape, even the South face can still be quite difficult. But once you reach the summit, the views you will get are nothing short of spectacular. I can also assure you that I will see to it you are safely guided throughout the adventure.

    As a result of the potential difficulties, it is important that participants are in good physical condition, and have some prior experience.

    This trip will take you to the Delgado Ubeda refuge. At the refuge you can, if you so desire, enjoy a meal and even spend the night, before making the climb to the summit. Thus giving you extra time to enjoy the climbing experience. However, this is not a requirement on this trip. So for those that wish to make climb in a single day, you can do that as well.

    Climbing the Naranjo de Bulnes is an unforgettable experience. And it would be my pleasure to guide you through it. So send me a request, and let the climb begin.

    I can also guide you to the top of the wonderful Puig Campana mountain in Spain as well.

    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.
