I finally reached this elusive summit on my third attempt. This time the weather was phenomenal on both days; we hiked to the third portillo on the first day and camped there, the next day we went for the summit at 3:00 AM, it took us 8 hours to get there due to the large number of climbers in or group (28). The snow conditions were great from just below the knees all the way to the summit. This is a more enjoyable climb than Pico de Orizaba, I can`t wait to do it again!
