As part of a 10 day trip on Izta and Orizaba, sadly she was not kind to us. Our summit day on the 16th was terrible. The clouds had us socked in the whole morning and afternoon. By the time we got to the Luis Mendez hut it was time to call it quits. Even the local guides were turning groups back. No one summited that day. Was a incredible climb over all. No one believes in switchbacks around here! Will be back to capture this peak some day. Fortunately Orizaba's weather was kind to us! Thanks for a great trip Base Camp 5 Adventures!!
