For a number of reasons, we didn't make it to the summit. Mike Robbin and I attempted a one day ascent. I just barely passed 16,000 feet on the knees before turning around. This is a gorgeous mountain. I'll be back some day. Here is the Trip Report

We'd planned to go from La Jollita to the Ayoloco Hut and ascend the Ayoloco Glacier but got off route in thick clouds. We traversed the rock field to the Grupo de los Cien hut and ascended the following day via The Knees. Summit day was cold and clear.

The most interesting volcano I've ever climbed and I'm from the Pacific NW. Highest i had been till the next week on Pico. Not very technically challenging but great first high altitude climb. Found a roach in the hut and treated myself to quite the "high" experience

I went from Puebla to the Grupo de los Cien hut on the first day, got there at 3pm and went up another hour to acclimatize and see the route. Left the next day at 7am to reach the summit at 10.30am. No clouds and great views untill 10.15. Saw nobody during those two days. Had to walk
back to Paso de Cortez! Had them with me but didn't use crampons nor ice-axe.

Started 8a.m. with 2 sons and 2nephews. Neat route up. However, I was the only one that summited,3pm. Good reason to go again. down at 6pm. I had been dreaming of this climb for 4 years and was delighted.

SawtoothSeanFun Traverse  Sucess!

We started at 11am and finished up at 9pm. This was a fun traverse up and over, and around many rocky outcroppings. Two small glaciers crossings at the end mixed things up and also provided much needed water on a hot day. The views of Popo are impressive from the beginning of this route.

My wife Hilde and me climbed the volcanoe as an acclimatisation trip for Orizaba. The Ayoloco hut is a really filthy place. We did three hours to the summit and enjoyed especially the icy belly in the first sunrays. Awesome views on Popcatepetl.

We did a loop going up the Ayoloco glacier and coming down the Arista del Sol to our camp way below the De Los Cien hut. The lack of water on the mountain dictated our camping spot but gave us a chance to see more of the mountain this way.

REALLY long day, about 17 hours. Mostly because of socializing, and some inexperience people at the top who didn't bring any crampons. We ended up helping them get back on the trail. The weather was warm and sunny with very little wind.

A great prep climb for Orizaba. I climbed them both with Mexican guide Cristobol Corona. We spent the night at the high hut and then hit up the summit the next morning. Beautiful climb and a fun, easy glacier.

Me and 12 climbers from Guatemala did it without local guides, for mostly of us this volcano was the first 5000 climbed succesfully. We finish 5 volcanoes in 15 days.

After climbing Popo the day before and since we felt great we decided to go up Ixta. I thought it was much more varied and the huts were, shall we say, "interesting" to have a look in but we were glad we didn't have to stay in them. After a couple of days rest we would then do Orizaba. Beautiful country.
