Thanks for the compliment. It is a cool peak because I have yet to see a tourist anywhere near the summit, and very few on the approach. It doesn't get climbed much even though it is the tallest thing around for many miles.
You found a lot of info on this volcano--good job! I refered to it a lot before climbing. It could use a LOT more pictures though--but i guess that is up to whoever climbs it (people like me). I will be making my additions soon.
Thanks for the vote, glad you enjoyed the peak. Are the entrance fees still the same? Maybe you didn't pay any as you were with a local? I haven't been down there since December of 2002, so I haven't had an update on the fee schedule.
