I really wanted to try and find this when I was driving through AZ a few months ago, but I didn't realize how hard it is!

In August a Bay Area photographer hiked up the crater with a small crew and posted several pictures from the trip on the image-sharing Web site Flickr.com. “We started up the volcano at dusk,” he wrote online under the screen name very1silent, “climbing in silence since we had not arranged for a tour. Part way up, in the darkness, we found a door in the cinders, but it proved locked. Scrambling over the crater lip, we saw two discs of glowing light down beneath us.”

He wound up sleeping inside the crater and waking up to dramatic views. But he ended his account by warning others not to try the same thing. “Be aware that the desert is not a forgiving place, and that the crater is remote, many miles from the nearest paved road,” he wrote. “You can die trying to get there.” He added that he restricted access to all but four photographs “for fear of inducing the unprepared to attempt a trek across the desert.”

hey, i'm the one who has that hellomynameisvee blog. let me just say that this quote is full of crap:

"Be aware that the desert is not a forgiving place, and that the crater is remote, many miles from the nearest paved road," he wrote. "You can die trying to get there."

what a joker. roads go pretty close to the crater and you have to walk the "desert" probably for like. a few miles. less than 10 miles MAX. it's probably also less than another 10 miles (driving) from a paved highway road, but there are other kinds of dirt local, unmapped roads that are open and go up much closer. joker!
