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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
