The Pico Tesorero (2570 m) is one of the most famous peaks of the Picos de Europa . This is mainly due to its central location in this mountain range. From the summit, almost all of the famous peaks of the Picos de Europa massif can be seen, for example the Naranjo de Bulnes (2519 m), the Peña Vieja (2619 m), the Torre Cerredo (2648 m) or the Torre de Llambrión (2642 m). You can also see the highest and most famous mountain in the western massif, the Peña Santa (2596 m). The pyramid-shaped peak forms the triangle of all three autonomous communities of Spain that have a share in the Picos de Europa: the borders of Asturias , Cantabria and Castile-León meet here.
The easiest climb is from the Cabaña Verónica , a small hut with four beds in the southeast of the mountain. It can be reached in two hours from the mountain station of the Fuente Dé cable car . From the hut you climb northwest to the base of the east ridge. Over the ridge you climb over good rock over the ridge that has become steeper to the summit (I +). It takes a good hour from the hut to the summit.
