Pico de Orizaba Trip Report (#1087)
- Signed By: Dave Robinson
- Date submitted: March 23, 2001
We left the hut at 1:00 am and summited just before 10:00. It was my first summit so it was a very special event for me. Izta got the better of me earlier in the week but the time at altitude helped with Orizaba. The glacier had plenty of fairly new snow and very little ice showing through.Conditions probably couldn't have been much better. The trip was arranged through the Reyes family in Tlachichuca.I have nothing but great things to say about them.If you want your best shot at the top and problem free adventure give them a call. Don't hesitate to email me if you have any questions.
