Participant Information

Self-propelled traverse North to South of the Picos de Europa range climbing the most iconic lines of this range. The trip will have some scrambling, lots of alpine climbing and advance route finding challenges, some of the areas we plan to cover are:

-Traverse of the Cabrones to Torrecerredo "Integral" crest
-Route Cepeda up Pico Urriellu
-Red Spur of Santa Ana mt
-Classic South of Horcados Rojos
-linkup of the ridge/crest of Madejuno-Tiro LLago and Torre Blanca-Torrecerredo

The dates are not completely set in stone and by the time the trip opens , end 2018 beginning 2019 we will have confirmed dates and a better idea on how much plane tickets are. This trip will require confidence in leading 5.10a alpine rock climbing as well as fitness to do a 8 day hiking traverse with heavy packs, some of the climbing will be done with overnight packs. More details on the climbs and route soon.
