From Cruz Grande to Pico de las Nieves and beyond. After having climbed from the north 8 years previously we added the wonderful southern route in Dec 2012. Not too crowded on top but still not the best of places to be. Contemplated climbing on to of the rock window but desisted since we didn't know how the military would react. Saw someone on top of the window later on ...

Hiked on one of the ancient "camino´s" until reaching a smaller trail that led to the summit. Great hiking variety, starting with agave and paving stones, and ending in a pine forest path on pumice and tuff. It is a little insulting to reach the summit with busloads of tourists, and the true summit just out of reach, the journey was definitly better than the destination.

maybe not the most beautiful hike, but great views.

As mentioned in an other poster, the radar, antennae and other military equipment do not help for a summit feeling.

Long climb (1200m of altitude). We lost our way quite often, especially on the last part below the summit. Ugly military installations on top but very nice views of both calderas. Descending, rain hit us.
