Description 

Big spectacular limestone peaks and deep canyons make this range practically alpine in nature. There are lots of big routes here including big wall free climbs on Spain's most famous mountain peak; El Naranjo de Bulnes (8,263ft). Picturesque villages nestled above deep gorges provide nice spot for rest and relaxation. There's a very good network of trails and climbing huts to stay in while attempting the climbs.

Getting There 

Access to the range is mostly made from the north.

Is the easiest (normal) route to climb the peak, crowed on summer weekends, is also the way down (rappel) for all the routes in the mountain,there are 5 pitches, 5.6, 5.5, 5.4, 5.6 and 5.0, then there is around 400 feet of exposed scrambling to the top, usually there are good spots to place the pro, but there is a really run out end of the penultimate pitch...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
