It is a great climb. me and three buddies chris from missula,mt and shawn from spokane,wa just got back. we summited at 8:00 mexico time. It took us 6 hours to reach the top. it took 2 to get down. the hut was in great shape. The rock field at thy approach is a little loose. once you hit the snow it is a strong climb to the top but its a good one. beautiful view if you can make to the snow before light. good luck and if you meet a truck full of mexicansthat pass out mezcal take some, it helps you sleep...
