----Only Party on Mountain
|Date:||Thursday, December 6, 2012|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||11604 ft / 3536 m|
Ascent Trip ReportTook a truck from Santiago de Atitlan up about 300 vertical feet above the lake and walked trails to camp above the Atitlan/Toliman saddle. In the morning, walked to the summit and reversed our steps.
I have no track for this one because we'd been told that bandits were active on the mountain. We left money, passport, electronics locked up in Panajachel. But we were told by the guide service in Santiago that the bandits were caught a couple of months ago, shamed in front of the town, and are now locked up.
