Climbed both the north and the south face! Spend the night at the refuges. Need plenty of planning and at least a couole days. Summit attempts need to get started during the night.

I visited "El Pico" several times. Great place to visit. Need good planning.

The south face is the easy way to hike to the summit. In winter with ice is the best option. The north face is more technical but with ice is very dangerous a lot of fatalities each year.
