Riglos Huesca, SPAIN
Climbs 300 – Rocktype Conglomerate – Altitude 650m a.s.l – Faces all
The giant conglomerate towers found at Los Mallos de Riglos offer some of the best multi-pitch climbing in Spain and are deservedly popular. The conglomarate blocks are set into a hard sandstone giving a unique climbing medium. Steep pumpy routes on large jugs predominate. Due to the nature of the rock offering almost no opportunities for natural protection nearly all the routes found at Riglos are bolt protected.
The different climbing sectors are: El Fire, El Circo de Verano (The Summer Cirque), El Pisón (The Step), El Puro (The Cigar), El Macizo de Pisón, Los Volaos, El Cuchillo (The Knife), El Melchor Frechín, La Visera (The Visor), los Mallos Pequeños y los Boulders de Riglos.
From Zaragoza take the A2 motorway to Lerida before joining the N240 towards Huesca. From here continue along the N240 towards Pamplona. About 20 km after Ayerbe take a right turn sign posted Los Mallos de Riglos. The towers can easily be seen from the village.
