/ Picos de Europa
Will be based in the Bulnes area -are there any crags easily accessible to climb on in that area
Have you not noticed the big one?
Or a little more constructive the aee some crags in Cabrales and the noteable village of Poo that should easy to access. There appears to be heaps of spectacular climbing in the Cares Gorge
Than you-yes we are going to climb on the Bulnes but wanted option for easy day etc
Alzo the Naranjo de Bjlnes has routes of pretty much any grade depending which side you aim for.
Arrived back from the Picos last night. Cabres & Las Cavadas are very easily accessible and some brilliant climbing! However, Naranjo de Bulnes is well worth the effort!
hello-yes we are going onto the Bulnes but want options for bad weather/easy day etc
Poo de Cabrales is pretty excellent. We went to the lower and upper crag. I found the routes hard for the grade at the upper crag. Amazing tufas, though!
How long are you out for? If you are still here there is a crag near sotres that has some run-out but mostly bolted multi pitch climbs on. I am keen to check the crag out. I am here for a while.
Here you go, plenty here to go at:
As well as the Naranjo we climbed at Cabadas (5 mins walk from the car), Puente de Lebena (short/shallow river crossing), and Cuevos del Mar, (beach with ice cream shack). All excellent single pitch sport crags. Topos online with Google image search.
Fuenta Du cable car also worthwhile as you can easily access some excellent scrambling peaks from there.
There are many fantastic crags in the Desfiladero de Hermida which is the gorge which borders the Picos on its eastern side. However Poo is also a great crag and probably a lot more accessible.
