If you join me on this fun and adventurous 1+day rock climbing expedition, we will head to the one of the most truly special and awesome rock climbing locations in all of Mexico, as we climb the fascinating and unique-looking volcanic rock of “El Huevo” (The Egg), named so because of its egg-shaped structure, all in Jilotepec, near Mexico City.
Jilotepec is a region located approximately 100km North of Mexico City, and is set amongst hilly and forested terrain. Its main focal points are farming and ceramics, with outdoor activities such as rock climbing becoming increasingly popular, due to its proximity to Mexico City.
We will meet in Mexico City, and from there we will drive to Jilotepec.
It is then a short journey along a forested trail to El Huevo, which towers above all around it at 300 feet tall. We climb the face of it for most of the day, with a wide array of techniques available depending on your level of ability. Due to its egg shape, we are able to climb on all sides of the rock, with different exposure to weather making each side unique.
The volcanic surface is a combination of consolidated ash and cobbles reminiscent of Maple Canyon in Utah, USA, and there are squared-off cobbles all over the surfaces.
We finish in the afternoon having climbed a completely unique and interesting rock surface, and one that you will not forget in a hurry.
Rock climbing up El Huevo is truly a one-of-a-kind experience – book now to see what the fuss is about!
Meet in Mexico City, drive to Jilotepec, rock climb all day, finish
Good for climbing all year round.
