Orbayu, on the Naranjo de Bulnes, is 500m long, has 13 pitches and the crux pitch weighs in at a mighty F8c+/9a.
The brothers are well known for their high standard big wall adventures, and their names are synonymous with the Naranjo de Bulnes in the Picos de Europa, Spain. This mighty limestone mountain hosts several of their routes, many of them with pitches in the F8 level of difficulty, protected by a mixture of pegs, bolts and natural gear.
The brothers state that their new route Orbayu has fall possibilities of up to 25m.
