Reached the summit on my 23rd birthday. But man..getting to Pital is a lot more work than actually hiking to the top. Was not sure if it was the top until we asked like 10th person who finally confirmed that we, indeed, reached the top of El Salvador.

Came to El Salvador not realizing I´d be hiking up the highest summit. Fun! Great view.

With Robert Assarian, reach the summit with very nice weather, Piedra Rajada trails looks like a misterious woods. Amazing place.

A little cloudy while on the summit but a beautiful sunset while hiking down. Fortunately got a ride most of the way back to town else it would have been pretty late before beer time!

I climbed the peak with my father, mother and sister Shaylee. It was a lot of fun and I liked choosing which country to eat lunch in while on the summit.

I climbed the peak from Rio Chiquito with Shaylee (my four year old daughter), Kessler (my six year old son) and Kimberly (my wife).

Since the top is in both countries and a monument marks the border, Shaylee wanted to eat lunch in El Salvador, Kessler wanted to eat lunch in Honduras, Kim ate lunch in both counties and I paced all over the place all over the top. We completed the round trip on summit day in six hours. It was a steep eight miles round trip, but Shaylee was on a mission to prove that she is as tough as her brother.

As mentioned, there is a very steep road to near the summit, but no one is forced to drive it and there are nice walking routes and trails as well. Even if you walk part way on the road there are some interesting mountain farms around. Just north of the summit and from the summit is a trail through some nice cloud forest.

Brett AMy First National Highpoint!
Although not impressive in its height, this was still an interesting climb. I missed the last bus up to the pass, but a very nice group of Salvadorans gave me a lift in their private van. I met up with a mysterious German girl as I was hiking so we joined forces. After summiting, we went to search for La Piedra Rajada, which is a huge rock outcropping separated from the bulk of the mountain by a huge abyss, only accessible via one of two scary-as-hell log bridges. I did this trip on my 2.5 month expedition through Guatemala, EL Salvador, Honduras, and Southern Mexico

Looks like Christian and I have hiked a lot of the same peaks. This is one of the most disappointing hikes in Central America due to the fact that you can drive to about 150 vertical feet of the summit.

Hi Blong, with a salvadorian guy, discover a new route, really awesome, beauty and hard route. From San Ignacio to a town named EL ROSARIO (Honduras side), from this point climb to COYAGUANCA rocks, next into the mid-virgen jungle to the top. 8 hours as minimun to the summit in complete natural environment. Very steep and some part rockclimb is needed.
