Summary: I climbed Pico Mogoton in December 2009 with local guide Roberto Castellanos in one day. It is a somewhat remote mountain, with some pathfinding and scrambling required over boulders in a riverbed and up steep slopes through the underbrush. The area near the top has been mined some time ago due to a border dispute between Nicaragua and Honduras, another reason not to venture into this territory without a guide.
The climb is described in the Blog post ‘Summit on Pico Mogoton‘.
