* Explore and see out to the lovely hills and forests of the area

* Try the different rock climbing techniques availableon the different sides


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!

I am very pleased with Explore-Share! This was my first international climb, and the communication and response time were great. Herbie is a very skilled guide and very efficient. The entire booking process & payment was smooth. I will definitely use Explore-Share again. Thank you.



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.
