Location

View map

The Mallos de Riglos are a set of conglomerate rock formations, located in Las Peñas de Riglos, Spain. They rise up to 300m high and form part of the foothills of the Pyrenees. Formed by eroded material washed down from the slopes of the Pyrenees, the formations became cemented together over time by limestone.

The Mallos de Riglos are a popular challenge for serious rock climbers and are also popular with the huge griffon vultures which nest there, as well as a great diversity of birds and raptors.

Your host will be in touch before your trip to finalise details.

What to Expect

Day 1: Climb to your portaledge at 100m

You’ll meet your guide in Riglos and learn a little more about getting to your portaledge, and get kitted out with the equipment you need before you begin your ascent.

There is a choice of route to get to the portaledges in time for the sunset; time and group ability will determine which route you take.

Just in front of your portaledge, you’ll have a natural balcony giving you freedom of movement but, more importantly, a spectacular viewpoint and space to enjoy dinner as you watch the sunset.

Before you retire to your cocoon, your guide will explain how to get to the portable toilet should you need to, and will remain on-hand the entire night via walkie-talkie.

Day 2: Summit Mallo de la Visera and descend

Enjoy breakfast on your balcony before a short, guided climb to the summit, not too far above your portaledge, for some more spectacular views.

From the summit, you will descend the cliff by rappel to the ground. With your feet firmly on the floor by around 10:00, it’s time to say goodbye.

Note: This itinerary and the duration of the activities are subject to change due to group abilities and preferences, and weather conditions and forecasts.

Accommodation

There are three rooms (portaledges) at different points of the cliff side. Each has a hammock with room for two people; there is space for two hammocks, allowing a group of four to camp together. Each room has its own natural balcony, and you’ll have access to a portable toilet.
