How to get there:
This is the highest mountain in El Salvador, located on the border with Honduras.
To get there, one must drive north from San Salvador.
First locate and drive to the town San Ignacio. From there, head north-east to
Chiquito. The road from Chiquito up to El Pital is steep and (normally) requires
a 4WD vehicle.

Route:: The summit is within an easy, short walk.
After quite a long drive from El Zonte (Bitcoin beach), we had a nice and
very short walk to this summit. There are antennas nearby, but fortunately,
the summit point is outside the fenced in area. This summit is also a border
marker between Honduras and El Salvador.
We had a 2 minute walk in Honduras,
for me a new country.
