Probably my earliest mountain summit, at least that I remember. Lots of gases at the top and loose volcanic debris on the cone - hiking staff is a great idea.

7summitsRoute Climbed: Normal route, to real summit Date Climbed: July 2000  Sucess!


Used to be one of Guatemala's dangerous points due to armed robberies, but now the area is more oganised and protected.

It's a very nice forest walk, ending at the bottom of the ash cone. There is a dusty track all the wayto the summit, but beware of the sulphur smell and the quite dangerous edge of the crater.

Climb at your own risk as the crater rim can collapse any time and the volcano can erupt constantly!

The view is great though and it';s interesting to see red hot lava in the crater

It's a nice adventure to watch so close that powerful mountain. Pretty nice walk up from San Francisco, but a little harder form Cerro Chino, after the volcano you can walk 3km to a lagoon nearby.
