Type of Trip



  • Discover great rock quality in Picos de Europa.

  • Climb in a peaceful and uncrowded area.

  • Contemplate incredible views of the Cantabrian Range.


Follow me on this rock climbing program and spend 1 day in the Picos de Europa Central Massif, in Cantabria. We’ll take a route in the San Carlos Peak.

Our adventure will begin in the Spanish commune of Fuente Dé, in the comarca of Liebana. Among the many routes offered by the San Carlos Peak south face, we’ll choose the Martingada route on this trip. This option will give us the chance to tackle a great wall of fantastic rock quality. Also, in this peaceful and remote area, we’ll contemplate outstanding views of the Cantabrian Range.

As for the difficulty, consider that the program is aimed at solid V grade climbers. In addition, participants should be able to hike for 4-5 hours and face an elevation gain of around 800 meters.  Although the Martingada route is one of the easiest in the area, keep in mind that it will be a moderate climb that requires prior experience and a good fitness level. The total duration of the program will be of 6-8 hours.

If you’re looking for a rock climbing adventure away from the crowds in Picos de Europa, then this trip is ideal for you. Please, send the request and make your reservation. You won’t regret it!

There is also the possibility to enjoy rock climbing on the “Mayara” route, also near Fuente Dé.

About the Guide


Based in Picos de Europa (Spain). Born in 1982, at the age of three I had my first contact with the mountains when my family took me skiing at the ski resort near my home.

Ever since then, I practiced consistently, developing an interest in climbing, skiing and trekking. I had always felt a special curiosity and attraction for alpinism and winter mountaineering and ever since then I have enjoyed the continuous learning process, climbing up some of the most emblematic mountains in Spain and abroad (France, Italy, Switzerland, Norway, USA, Morocco, Patagonia…)

After a few years working as a computer engineer where I felt that every day at office was “a wasted day”, I decided to leave everything and go for what really made me happy, to continue my mountain guide education and to head in the direction where I really wanted to go rather than just dreaming about it. I wanted everyday to count and to be able to share and transmit everything that the mountains mean to me.
