The best side for ascending is the north face that can be access by the village of Tlachichuca, you can access by truck (best 4x4 but not essential) to the refugee of "Piedra Grande (4,100 mts). It is convenient to stay there for one night to become acclimatized
From there you start the ascending to the glacier of Jamapa (5,000 mts). It takes about 3-4 hours to get there. From there you need crampons and axe to enter a 35 to 45 degrees climb. It takes from 3-4 hours to get the summit (5,610 mts).
