    If you want to climb in a quiet and very attractive natural area, this trip is for you. Come with me to this 3-day climbing tour in Mallos de Riglos and head up its imposing vertical rocks.

    Riglos is a small rural town situated in the southern foothills of the Pyrenees, in the municipality of Las Peñas de Riglos, in Aragon, Spain. Its “mallos” (local dialect word for “hills”) make this place very popular for climbers around the world.

    Made of sand and stone, these rocks have hundreds of steep up to 300m climbing routes. Most of them are bolt-protected and easy to access. The multi-pitch routes of this area are especially famous.

    On this 3-day tour we will head up three classic spots in Mallos de Riglos: “Mosquitos”, “Murciana” and “José Antonio Sanz”.

    “Mosquitos” provides the easiest climb to the summit of La Visera. This enjoyable climb includes an exposed traverse on a giant limestone block known as “the throne.” It is mainly UIAA Grade V with one section 6a and another one 6b.

    Located on Mallo Pisón, “Murciana” is the most popular route on this formation. Originally done over 12 days in 1976, it has been retro bolted and now it is a classic sport climb.

    In Mallo Frechín we will climb the José Antonio Sanz route.  It is generously equipped, mostly 6a difficulty, and involves a vertical and athletic climb.

    Mallos de Riglos, located 45 km northwest of Huesca, stands in a beautiful environment and claims 300 sunny days per year. Upon these huge walls we will enjoy unforgettable panoramic views.

    So, if you are up for this 3-day climbing tour in Mallos de Riglos,request your booking! I’ll be glad to help you climb these impressive and beautiful walls.
