    Let’s climb the Picos de Europa in Asturias, North Spain. Undoubtedly, the best limestone of the planet!!!

    It’s a pleasure for me to invite you to live two or several days climbing the famous Picos de Europa (European Peaks). The Picos de Europa are part of the Cantabrian Mountains.

    Its special geomorphology with rock towers, walls and calcareous gorges makes it a paradise for climbers. Naranjo, Peña Santa and Horcados Rojos are some of the most famous walls of this mountain range.

    In addition, the Picos de Europa have the well-deserved fame of being one of the best limestone sites on earth. These wild and abrupt peaks hide in their walls fantastic and little known climbing lines. So it’s very easy to enjoy a day, or even a week, in absolute loneliness and peace. Far from the crowds.

    I can propose you a 2-day tour to the classic routes. During this trip you’ll climb the Naranjo de Bulnes and the Peña Santa de Castilla walls. You can choose any of their faces. Each one implies a different technical and physical level. If you have doubts I can help you find the most suitable climbs for you.

    As for the week program, it is a tour of the most important walls of the Picos de Europa. During this trip you can climb classic walls of about 300 meters. Some of them are Torres Arenera and Cerredo, Horcados Rojos and Peña Olvidada.

    Each program has its own price. Please see more details below. If you want to go to any other rock climbing spot in the Pyrenees, you can also check out my program in the Ordesa Valley.

    And if you have more questions or want to book your place for next departures, feel free to contact me now. It will be a honor for me to guide you there!

    About the Guide

     
     

    Mountain guide UIAGM/IMFGA and Canyoning guide AEGM

    I was born in the early 80´s in the Basque Country. I grew up in an environment sorrounded by nature. Ever since I was a small child I felt fascinated by the mountains, feeling more at home hiking and climbing than anywhere on land.

    In 2003, I became part of the Spanish National Alpinist Team (FEDME). During those 6 years I achieved a large baggage of ascents and openings worldwide.

    As part of the first Spanish team graduated to receive international certification (UIAGM/IFMGA), I have been guiding professionally since 2005.
