Route Climbed: NW Ridge Date Climbed: December 14, 2003  Sucess!

Climbed from the north side, starting from the Nature Preserve visitor´s center, thinking that this was the normal route. As a result of our confusion, instead an easy 2-3 hour acclimatization hike, we thrashed our way up a 1,600m ascent, including a very wet 50m of class 5 rock and 70 degree mud. The descent of this section may turn out to be the most technically challenging of the entire trip. Definitely not the acclimatization hike that I was hoping for. The weather was horrible with almost no visibility and periods of rain. We definitely reached a high point on the crater rim, but I´m not sure if this was the true summit due to the poor visibility.

Very pleasant climb, and excellent for aclimatizing. Didn't get a clear day but it has sure a great vista of surrounding volcanoes!
