El Yelmo, La Pedriza, Spain, Guided Climb

El Yelmo, La Pedriza, Spain, Guided Climb | undefined

Join Fran, an AEGM certified guide, on a full day climb of the beautiful El Yelmo in the amazing La Padriza in the Guadarrama mountain range in Spain.

1 Day

Jan - May, Sep - Dec




The beautiful El Yelmo (1,717m), also known as Pena del Diezmo is a magnificent mountain. And for a full day, I would like to guide you to its equally amazing summit!

Located in the gorgeous La Pedriza rock formation in the Guadarrama mountain range of Spain, El Yelmo is one of the most popular and most beautiful highlights in the area. Anybody who has ever been lucky enough to visit the incredible La Pedriza has undoubtedly seen El Yelmo. It is wonderfully unique because it looks like a massive dome of pure granite.

Climbing to the top of El Yelmo can be tricky because scaling it requires the usage of the special adherence technique. This technique focuses less on strength and more on the technique itself, which revolves around precise foot positioning. It also utilises special footwear with a smooth rubber sole. Climbing El Yelmo is definitely more of a fine climb than an athletic one. Hence making this ascent one you will never forget!

There are several different climbing routes to choose from on this trip. There is Ignatius, Valkyrie, Hermosilla, Caballo Blanco, Guirles-Campos and the El Nombre del Hombre on the south face. And there is North Diedro and Keka on the north face.

Climbing El Yelmo is an amazing adventure. And the views of the stunning La Pedriza are remarkable. So if you would like to experience this journey for yourself just send me a request. I would be happy to guide you.

I also lead a 1 day ascent of the Pena Vieja in the Cantabria region of Spain as well.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
