One of the easiest ways to get a high altitude peak. A rough jeep drive to the refuge, then an hour's walk to the summit. Altitude record for my non-climbing wife Janet Morgan. This is an active volcano, with a long history of explosions and eruptions. There was a big one October 7, 1999. If it is safe to go, make certain to talk to scientists who work out of the research station. Fascinating.
