Thanks to Gene Bosche for adding this peak.
Very easy climb. great for acclimatization and prep for a bigger challenge Mt. we happened to go on a day that a big tropical depression came on land. This resulted in us hiking in rain until we reached an altitude high enough that the rain turned to sleet. We left from Huamantla and hiked down to Malintzin. NOTE: there are no public buses that leave from Malintzin to the surrounding towns. we were lucky and hopped a ride on a bus that carries workers from their homes in town to and from Malintzin - otherwise plan to stay there (have a vehicle) or make the 18 Km hike to Apizaco
2nd Note: The trail from a Park Service road leaving from Humantla is a disaster. it started out clear, but became a web of goat trails. Our indicator or teh correct direction to go was to continue heading up hill. The train from the summit to the service road near Malintzin is like a 8 lane highway. That place must be packed on weekends.
Thanks to Gene Bosche for this description.
