Ascent Trip Report

Me and Christoph took an AU bus from Puebla to Tlachichuca, stayed one night at the Servimont climbing lodge and drove to Piedra Grande hut the next day. We slept there one night after climbing up to 4550 m to leave our tent at the first camp. The next morning we carried supplies (15 l water) to the campsite and scouted the route up to 4900 m. We returned to the camp and slept on 4550 m. On summit day we left camp at 1.30 am and reached the summit via the Jamapa Glacier normal route at 7 to 7.30 am just in time for sunrise. The views and the crater are beautiful! We spent an hour at the summit and returned to camp around 11 am, took a little nap and returned to the hut in time for our scheduled 2pm pickup to return to Tlachichuca. Perfect weather and snow conditions!
