Something not right?

Description

(Jan 2020). Modern new refugio, with bright windows, pit toilet, table, benches and loft for sleeping (3 sleeping bags). No water. There was an extra old shelter 20m west, on the E side of which one could pitch several tents. There was a lean-to where one could store one's bikes.
Note: I confirmed the location of Refugio6. It is as shown in table at left. The location specified on Dec 8th 2019 (-53.32103, -68.83145) is incorrect. This was the location of Refugio5, which no longer exists. It was likely moved to its present location, 1 km E of the old Refugio5, to be visible to folk traveling N-S on Y891.

(Original entry). We stopped here when it got dark. There is a grassy path going away from the street for about 50m. Visible from the road but almost no traffic at night and therefore very quiet.

Found the Refugio in good condition. The pit toilet was clean and in a usable state. I used the small bench to make the access to the top platform easier. Calm and refreshing night before a long day to Rio Grande.

Nice and clean. Reasonably warm and fully wind protected. Still no ladder to top floor but you can climb from the table.

we passed 3 shelters of this today and this one was that one in the best condition. unfortunately the ladder to the first flor is missing so its bit hard to climb up but its possible. we cleanded it a little bit. would be nice if everyone who come here can clean it just a little bit to keep that nice shelter as good as it is. thanks

Fine for a night. I slept on the ground floor. I have no idea how you could climb up to the mezzanine without the ladder, as the table is not directly below it. Maybe a much taller person could do it! Window is fixed, although just with corrugated metal and plastic, not glass. Very little draft comes through.

Perfect refugio (as mentioned window is repaired). Only the ladder to the secound floor is missing. But if you managed to cylcle until here you most probably will be able to climb up (over the table). We had a very nice night.

This place is incredible ! brand new refugio with garbage cans, toilets, table, fireplace and mezzanine to sleep. Very clean and comfortable. please keep this place clean!!

Report Check-In

Didn't stop and just drove past but the road is definitely open (surface still bad!) and the 'bus stop' or tin shack is still standing.

Bit of a bleak place to stay for a night but looks like it would serve its purpose.

Rather unhelpful / confusing marking a place as 'permanently closed' when there is only temporary work being done btw

Report Check-In

This place is permanently closed.

This place is no longer accessible since they are laying a new road surface.
