This really is a tough climb. I am young, in good shape and have a fair amount of hiking experience. Still it was tough. The roughest part for me is I only wore sneakers as hiking boots were too heavy to lug around Central America. As a result the angular volcanic rocks really did a number on the soles of my feet. I limped a bit for a couple days after. I wish I remember my guide's name he was excellent and brought us all the way to the summit. There was no view and the wind was strong enough to makes standing up a very difficult proposition. Still it was a great experience and I felt a great deal of satisfaction. Be sure to bring a wind breaker or jacket of some kind if you want to go all the way up, and wear boots if you have them. I really regret wearing sneakers.
