Picu Urriellu / Naranjo de Bulnes Ascents. Local, certified Climbing Leader

Naranjo de Bulnes guided rock climbs

Climbing the Picu Urriellu or Naranjo de Bulnes with a climbing guide on any of its faces has become in recent years the most demanded active tourism or adventure activity in Los Picos de Europa. Either by climbers who prefer to carry out their projects by the hand of a local mountain guide, who knows the place like the palm of his hand, or by locals who do not practice climbing but want to climb the emblem that represents Asturias and Los Picos from Europe, and thus culminate this summit with pride, becoming a kind of tradition that passes from parents to children.

" Do I need previous experience in traditional rock climbing? "

For those with no experience I recommend doing a previous day of climbing that I will adapt to the subsequent activity. If you have little experience in climbing, it is usual to climb the South side of the Naranjo de Bulnes, but there are also many routes for intermediate levels, such as the Amistad con el Diablo route on the East side of Picu or more advanced, such as the Murciana route 78 on the west side of the Picu Urriellu.

"The days before the ascent of" Picu "were of uncertainty and doubts, but the dream of stepping on it was greater. After greeting and engaging in conversation with Pablo I began to take security, and what seemed difficult seemed easier and complicated complicated for sure . Thank you Pablo for making my dream come true. "

How does the ascent to the Naranjo de Bulnes develop?

Example: South Direct to Naranjo de Bulnes Normally they are two days of activity, although it is also possible to do it in one. Day 1: Normally the meeting is in the Refugio de la Vega de Urriellu the day before the activity, about 7 pm. Once presented the guide will provide the necessary material to the participant, explain concepts and review the necessary material for the activity. During dinner, which is at 20 hours, we can chat and comment on all kinds of doubts and talk about the breakfast and departure schedule the next day. This schedule varies depending on the time of year and weather. Day 2: We will leave already prepared from the Refuge along the road that will take us to the Canal de la Celada, through which in a short but intense climb we will border the entire north face of the Picu Urriellu. After finishing the canal we will continue climbing a more comfortable path below the imposing East side of the Naranjo de Bulnes. Normally the climbing is done in about four hours. After climbing and after going out to the southern amphitheater through the characteristic hole, we will still have to go up the short channel that takes us to the top edge and from here to the summit. Once at the summit we have time to eat something, take some photos and chat. Later we will begin the descent path towards the rappels of the southern amphitheater. We will make three rappels and we will arrive at the base where we will pick up and start the way down to the Refugio de la Vega de Urriellu along the same way. Normally between 2 pm and 4 pm you are back at the hut.
