With my friend Axel, we reached the summit on saturday 5th April. Nice climb, some penitentes, correct ice conditions. Overall good weather, just some clouds at the summit. We started at Pietra Grande, 0300am, summited at 1030am and returned to the hut at 1430pm. Acclimatization was done on Izta a couple of days before. Special thanks to Senor Gerardo. He took us to Pietra Grande and we spent a restful night in his hotel (Hotel Gerar) after our successful attempt on El Pico de Orizaba.
