Round the World in 40 Climbs: Episode 16: Picos Du Europa 3: South face of Urielleu

The South Face of Naranga Del Bulnes is one of the greatest easy routes in the world. At hard severe it is within the reach of most people. Similarly the North Face via the Ramada-Navarro is one of the greatest F6 grade routes with two early pitches of F6c, which are essentially just a difficult move or two you can pull through with 6a climbing or below after that to the summit.

We like the Picos Du Europa so much that we offer week climbing trips there. The highlight of these courses is often an ascent of Naranga Del Bulnes. Although there is so much climbing around here from sport to multi pitch trad that a week may not be enough.
