Riglos Accommodation

Hey,
Can anyone tell me what the options for accommodation in Riglos in Spain are like? I'm going to be there in a couple of weeks, and would rather not have to bother taking a tent if I don't have to.

I understand (from this site http://www.radclimb.com/gpage.html) that there's a climbing refuge, that's inexpensive. Anyone know how much it costs?
cheers
James

When we visited in April the main refugio was closed for accommodation but at least the bar and restaurant part was open (at times). This is probably the one you've been recommended here. I think that's where most climbers stay and I think they have dorms and so probably isn't so exy.

So anyway we stayed in a Refugio about 50m up the hill from the main Refugio. It would be one of the ones Zugojugo listed but I can't remember which. It was very nice. It was late and we didn't have a lot of options so were happy with this however it was expensive. I'd be guessing, but I think something like 30+ Euro for the two of us. Mind you, after we severely epiced one day - - rapping off one of the highest formations, at night, in gale-force winds (a whole other story - but watch out for the winds) - - we were pretty grateful for somewhere comfy to stay!

Camping near town is not a great option, as far as we could find out. And you'll likely get told off severely if you free camp illegally...

Book ahead if you can. Have fun. Great place.

Thanks again for the info - 30 euro for two seems ok - still better than a hostel in the city.
Think I'll definitely leave the tent behind.

To finish off this thread for anyone searching through it in future:

The refugio is obvious next to the road just as you enter town. It costs 18euro a night (11 if you are a member of a climbing association with reciprocal rights) or 29 including dinner (it includes breakfast anyway).
Bivving in, or next to, your car in the car park doesn't seem to be a problem, and we saw a tent about 5km back down the road in a random open space.
I dont' know about getting there by train - but it might be a bit of a mission. You don't need a car while you're there (5min approaches) but getting down to the big town for groceries would be interesting without one.
You can buy the (fairly new) guidebook from the refugio - I think it cost 15 euro.

The little shop just up the road sells chalk and guidebooks, but isn't always open (wasn't open during the week, but opened on the weekend when the place got busier - same for the bar).
Huesca is about 35 km away and has a climbing shop (where you can buy replacement chalkbags when your chalk bag string knot comes undone unexplicably half way up a route) and a barrabes discount/clearance store (which is kind of cool if you want some randon cheap stuff - but doesn't have anything that useful really).

We got away fine with a single 60m rope, but doubles might be handy I guess.

And one final thing - regular training on 2 bolt routes at South Central is perfect for 300m of steep jugs... ;)
