Hi, theres a book of the routes in the refuge with all the topos. I found all the topos easy to find online and just printed them off before... https://www.summitpost.org/naranjo-de-bulnes-west/14661

The refuge is also a really good price compared to the alps.

we carried a tent up which makes for an awesome camp spot but wished we had not bothered carrying the extra gear and just stayed in the refuge.

This is if it’s open in these times of covid.

we also used topo’s and info off the internet and the Costa verde guide for the valley sport.

You might need to search for "Pico Urriellu" instead.

We used "Cordillera Cantabrica" guidebook by Niguel Adrados.   Topos are good; it would have been helpful to have some spanish for access description to other areas, but we managed without.  Only other downsides were that it's a bit of a hefty brick and quite expensive

This is the book you want: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Free-Climbing-Picu-Urriellu-Guidebook/dp/8494339923

I don't want to part with my copy but if you have a specific route in mind I'm happy to send you the pictures. It's worth noting that while the general descriptions of the faces/approaches are translated, the route descriptions are only in Spanish. It's fairly formulaic though and easy to decipher even if you don't speak Spanish.
