Colombia is a country full of magic. No wonder why it is the birthplace of magical realism, made famous by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Exploring its enchanting cities and towns, and its natural wonders, is a once in a lifetime experience you cannot miss. So if you are looking for a unique rock climbing place search no more. Join us on this climbing adventure in El Peñol.

Very close to the beautiful city of Medellin, El Peñol is a rock climbing paradise. This fantastic place is one of the major granite outcrops in the country. And it is right on the lakeside village of Guatapñe.

El Peñol is normally climbed by tourists using a 750 step staircase. But, for the real adventurers, there is a more fun and exciting route, as it offers some of the most challenging climbing opportunities in Colombia. There are more than 30 routes we can explore.

Due to the unique beauty and conservation of this place, it is not one in which climbers can tackle on their own. You need to contact a local tour operator, or in this case, let us handle everything for you!

So on this private adventure, one of our expert and certified guides will follow you and your group exclusively. Therefore, you will not have to share this incredible experience with unknown guests. Our main goal will be to keep you safe. And of course, we want to ensure you have a wonderful time.

If you wish to come with us to El Peñol, all you have to do is send us a message. Let us arrange the best rock climbing experience for you in Colombia.

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.
