It is possible to make basic ascents without having climbed before. Even so, the necessary notions to be able to do the activity will be taught.
Example: South Directa al Naranjo de Bulnes
Day 1: Normally the meeting point is at the Vega de Urriellu Shelter the day before the activity, around 19:00 pm. Once introduced, the guide will provide the participant with the necessary material, explain concepts and review the material needed for the activity. During dinner, which is at 8:00 p.m., we will be able to chat and discuss all kinds of doubts and we will talk about the schedule for breakfast and departure the following day. This schedule varies depending on the time of year and weather.
Day 2: We will leave prepared from the Refuge by the path that will take us to the Canal de la Celada, through which in a short but intense ascent we will skirt the entire north face of Picu Urriellu. After finishing the channel we will continue ascending by a more comfortable path below the imposing east face of the Naranjo de Bulnes. The climb normally takes about four hours. After the climb and after leaving the south amphitheater, we still have to go up the short rope channel that takes us to the summit ridge and from here to the summit. Once at the summit we have time to eat something to eat, take some pictures and chat. Afterwards, we will begin our descent towards the rappels of the southern amphitheater. We will make three rappels and arrive at the base where we will pick up and begin the descent to the Vega de Urriellu Shelter by the same route we took on the way out. Normally between 14:00 and 16:00 we are back at the shelter.
