I love this climb. Constant steep gradient with great views. Easy to follow trail and I have never encountered any problems with robbers. Great views over Santiago from the top if you start early(ish) and avoid the possibility of clouds. This is tough but if you go at your own pace you will make it. Take a tuk tuk to the entrance office and pay the 100Q entry fee. The price is the same whether you use a guide or not. Then just enjoy.
