I climbed this peak as part of Phil Ershler's IMG Mexican Volcanoes program. I treated it in the beginning as a warm up to Orizaba, but I quickly learned what a mistake it would be for one to take this mountain lightly. This thing wore me down big time. The false summits will get to you, but if you put one boot in front of the other and keep going you will be well rewarded. An excellent introduction to high alititude climbing. Special thanks to Phil, Lindsay and Oso!
