I would never leave anything unattended on Izta. Locals drive up to La Joya all the time in their normal cars. The road is very easy to drive up on. My buddy got everything stolen at La Joya a few years ago. He got everything stolen except for his clothes on his back and his passport. He had to go home the next day. It was pretty terrible.
I have left things at Piedra Grande on Orizaba many times. There is a lot less traffic because you need a pretty rugged SUV to be able to get up to the hut. There is a guy every year that I have gone that you can pay $5 a day to watch your stuff at the hut. He is a really nice guy and I have never had a problem with anything gone missing. I believe he is a freind of the Concholas.
