I enjoyed this climb immensely, it was a cloudy day with intervals of hiking in dense clouds followed by periods of clear blue sky. The hike lasted about 4 hours and was the first serious summit scramble for my girlfriend. I have to say that I was disgusted with the graffiti adorning the summit, but overall for both an enjoyable day hike and as a tune up for Izta it is well worth the trip as climbing 4000 vertical feet in such a short time up to almost 15000 is a challenging task to say the least!

We climbed the standard route with about a thousand locals that day. The presence of snow had brought out the crowds to enjoy a nice day in the snow. Definitely an experience. We saw everything from elderly ladies with dresses and low sided shoes to groups roped together with electrical cord. (All of which were moving faster than we were.) We summited with a local dog that had decided to attach itself to us. See my trip report.

Beautiful weather, great views, no special equipment or anything required. We didn't do Malinche as an acclimatization to Iztaccihuatl but as a "chillout" after it :-) The only thing i hated was the camp, being "trapped" in a cage-style resort with tons of people. Next time i will take my tent up to where the forest ends and enjoy the silence.

Reached the summit in about 5 hours from the IMSS resort. The hike up through the forest was quite nice and there was much more snow on the mountain than I expected. Since we were there on a weekend, the resort and the mountain were flooded with people and I posed for lots of pictures with Mexican climbers on the way down. The mountain is perfect for acclimatization and is a good climb in its own right as well. For more details of my climb on La Malinche, check out my Trip Report.

Started from the government camp, (IMSS) with girlfriend, made up in 2:30 hrs. The trail is easy to find. This is a good acclimation hike for Izta and Orizaba.
