Pico Uriellu(Naranjo De Bulnes
About Pico Uriellu(Naranjo De Bulnes:
Summited for the first time on August 5th, 1904 on its North face, the easier routes are on the South and hardest the West, with a 530 meters (1,739 feet) long wall.
Mainly trad climbing, some bolts and fixed pitons can be found due to its popularity. The summit is at 2,519 meters (8,264 feet), on an alpine environment, that makes the weather pretty unstable. Best season is usually the summer, also the most crowded time of the year.
To sleep: At the West base is the hut "Vega de Urriello", and there is also a good number of natural bivouac areas in the nearby of the hut. As in most of the natural parks in Spain, you can set your tent to sleep close to the hut, but only to sleep, no permanent camping is allowed. The water can be obtained from the fountain at the hut.
Directions: From Cangas de Onís go towards Puente Poncebos, leaving the car at the valley of Pandebano. From here, walk on the ridge until the Vega del Urriellu (approx. 3,30 hours). Other option is to approach from Cantabria, from Fuente De, taking the cable car, and from here walk in direction to Cabaña Verónica and then through Horcados Rojos.
