Highlights

 
     

    The Naranjo de Bulnes, known in Asturias as Picu Uriellu, is a magnificent limestone peak located in the north of Spain. I would like to invite you to climb one of its walls on a 2-day program and enjoy the beautiful landscape that surrounds it.

    There are several ascent options to get to the top of this 2,519 meter peak. They all include a wide variety of climbs and incredible views of the Picos de Europa. I propose the following:

    South Face: Direct route (150 meters).

    East Face: The Amistad con el diablo (350 meters) route, which translates to friendship with the Devil! Or, the Cepeda route (350 meters).

    North Face: Pidal-Cainejo route (650 meters).

    West Face: Murciana (600 meters), Rabada-Navarro or Leiva (500 meters) routes.

    Whichever way we choose to ascend, our program will follow a similar structure. First, we will go towards the Vega de Urriellu Refuge through Pandébano or Fuente De cablecar. We’ll spend the night there, and then, the second day, we’ll hike to the beginning of our chosen route and climb the Naranjo de Bulnes.

    It is important that you have some prior climbing experience before tackling this route. Also, you will need to be physically fit. Of course, I will be there to assist and guide you with whatever you may need.

    Would you like to participate in an exhilarating climbing adventure in Spain? Then join me on this unique climb of the stunning Naranjo de Bulnes. I would love to show you this spanish gem.

    If you are looking for more options, I also offer a guided ascent to Picos of Europa. Be sure to check it out.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I am a Leonese and in love with the mountains, especially the Cantabrian Mountains and the Picos de Europa. I grew up in her, maybe that's where love arose and the desire to spend more and more time in her lap. It was for this reason that, early on, I wanted to learn to combine my two passions: education and guidance, in all types of terrain, around the world.

    Guide of high mountain (UIAGM), sports technician in rock climbing and in half mountain (UIMLA) are the qualifications that go to me in the world of the mountain. These are inherently intertwined with another that, in his day, I considered necessary for a serious and rigorous teaching of any sports field: bachelor's degree in psycho-pedagogy and diploma in physical education.

    All this added to my personal and work experience in the world of the mountain and the sport make that I can enjoy my work and teach with guarantees of quality.
