The best multi-pitch sport route in the world? 'Fiesta de los biceps' (F7a), Riglos © ali k

Crag features

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.

Approach notes

From Zaragoza take the A23 motorway to Huesca. From here continue along the A132 towards Pamplona. About 8 km after Ayerbe take a right turn sign posted Los Mallos de Riglos. The towers can easily be seen from the village. From Barcelona take the A2 to Lerida/LLeida then A 22 to Huesca then as from Zaragoza.

Access Advice

Some routes are protected when the vultures nest on them. This is quite unusual as the main neating area is seperate from thee climbs.
