Pico de Orizaba Trip Report (#1010)

  • Signed By: Nathan Hoover
  • Date submitted: April 29, 2001

Our trip in April 2001 had the goal of climbing Orizaba with unicycles. Kris Holm and I, accompanied by two photographers, climbed La Malinche first, then with a ride from the Reyes to just below the Fausto Gonzales Gomar hut, climbed the southern route (La Ruta Sur). The climb too 4 1/2 hours from the hut at 15,200', and there was no snow, so it was "a bit" of a slog. We summited a little before a beautiful sunrise and rode our uniccyles along the crater rim. Lots of work, but a great time.
