Iztaccihuatl Trip Report (#3283)

We summited Izta via de normal (feet) route. The rainy season in Mexico is a little bit late this year so we had some clouds and a bit of fog during the early dawn climb. We reached the summit around 10 AM and went down that same day. Izta still amazes me. Even though you only have around 500 meters gain from the feet's hut to the summit, you end up climbing an impresive amount of 1,400 mts. of pure gain!!, This is due to the many ups and downs on the traverse going to the summit. Be prepared for a long day when you go for Izta. Best of luck!!
