    Conquer one of Spain’s most iconic peaks with this private guided climb of Picu Urriellu, also called Naranjo de Bulnes!

    This limestone peak, part of the Picos de Europa located in the province of Asturias, Northern Spain, is legendary among climbers.  It may not be the highest mountain of the Cantabrian mountain range, but sending the sheer faces of this imposing mountain is something climbers from all over the world aspire to achieve.  Not to mention, the prehistoric glacier valley which unfolds at its base is truly a stunning setting for our adventure.

    There are a variety of different routes we can send on the four faces of Picu Urriellu.  Because I will be guiding you in private (maximum of 2 participants), we will choose the program that best suites your abilities and interests. Maximize your time on this magical mountain: we can explore the mountain over the course of one or more days – it’s up to you!

    Book now and I guarantee a challenging yet rewarding climb on a classic Spanish mountain – Picu Uriello, also known as Naranjo de Bulnes!

    About the Guide

     
     

    Sports Technician in climbing, Specialist in Guidance and Accompaniment with Disabled in Mountain, Operator of camera in mountain and climbing, member of the Spanish Association of Mountain Guides (AEGM),

    I live in Madrid, where there is an infinite number of possibilities to climb throughout the year, such as the Sierra de Guadarrama or its neighboring Sierra de Gredos, among others. In summer I am between the Picos de Europa, the Pyrenees and the Alps.

    I am passionate about mountains since I was very small, always dreaming of climbing them. The years go by and instead of dying out these dreams, they increase exponentially. Always looking for the next mountain, the next climb, the next way to go ...

    Thanks to this profession of guide, I can transmit to my clients my great passion for the mountains, the feelings and emotions that we have when climbing, the happiness that invades you when crowning that desired summit.

    One of the activities that enriches me the most in my work is to be able to guide people with disabilities through the mountain, either by a simple path or by a vertical rock wall.

    I also combine it with my other great passion, which is the camera, making mountain documentaries and working for different television programs.

     
     


     

     

    What People are Saying about Rubén Martín Sánchez

     

    Rubén is an amazing guide and loves climbing more than anyone I\'ve met. Our summit of El Yelmo in La Pedriza was phenomenal and he made sure to prioritize safety from the beginning. It was an amazing climb, I can\'t wait to climb with Rubén again in the future. Mil gracias Rubén!

    We were rained out, so I can\'t honestly review my experience with Penon de Ifach. It will have to wait until another time. However, weather is beyond Jorge\'s control and he went out of his way to make sure I was informed the entire time on the possibility of needing to cancel well before my trip. In addition, he handled all previous logistics excellently and provided that nature did not intervene I have no doubt this would have been a phenomenal experience. Jorge also made sure that my deposit was refunded with expediency shortly after cancellation. I would recommend using this service to seek adventure in the beauty of Spain, as they clearly use highly trained and professional individuals to make sure that your safety is of main priority.

    I just spent 4 days climbing in Costa Blanca with My guide, Ruben Sanchez.  I have been climbing for 25+years, and have worked with a lot of guides around the world.  Climbing with Ruben was truly one of the best guided experiences I have ever had. He has a  rare combination of easy going, encouraging personality mixed with very safe and competent climbing/guiding skills. I told him what I wanted to accomplish during our time together, and he more than met my expectations.  I was challenged,  but always felt safe, and I had a great time.  The bonus was working on my Spanish for 4 days (he was incredibly patient with me!). I would HIGHLY recommend Ruben as a guide to anyone looking to climb in Spain.  Thank you so much for making the connection for me!
