One of our favorite spots around Mexico City is Jilotepec (aka Jilo), a conglomerate area an hour to the northeast of Mexico City. It’s a quick drive and the climbing begins just a few feet from the parking (not that we’re that lazy!) The climbs are steep, hard and of excellent quality although unfortunately several contain tallados, or drilled pockets. If you can put that behind you, a world of fun awaits!
