NARANJO DE BULNES
WHICH FACE ARE WE GOING TO CLIMB?
Our climbing trip to the Naranjo de Bulnes gives you the chance to get to know one of the most internationally reknowned climbing areas. And the truth is that the Picos de Europa leaves nobody indifferent.
The “Picu Urriellu”, Naranjo the Bulnes, is a limestone monolith criss-crossed with routes with history that deserves to be commemorated by repeating them.
Whether you want to navigate its more accessible south face (we suggest the direct south route of Los Martínez to get you started), its adventurous and winding north face along the Vía Pidal Cainejo, or the aesthetic plaques on the east face with excellent routes such as La Cepeda or Amistad con el Diablo or its impressive vertical and overhanging walls of the west face, where we have some emblematic classic routes such as the Rabadá-Navarro or the Murciana, our expert guides will make your experience an unforgettable adventure.
The surroundings are wild and breathtakingly beautiful. And the activity…why don’t you experience it for yourself?
