That is a stunning looking mountain and esp. its west face. May I ask if this is a recent photo & what time of the year was it? Crowded (route & refugio)?

It is a stunning mountain - and area - which deserves to be better known in the anglophone world.

The photo was taken last August, peak season, there was one other party on the route. It's a good day out, very roughly comparable to DNB in scale and difficulty.

General Naranjo de Bulnes beta and other routes suggestions here.

The refugio is hard to book in July/August but there seemed to be spaces for those who turned up on spec. Lots of people camp or bivi. There are numerous camping spots and a few bivi boulders in the vicinity of the hut and there seemed to be no issues with campers using hut facilities.

I expect you've seen the film 'Orbayu' (meaning thick fog or light drizzle in Asturian dialect) which gives a good sense of the place.
