Iztaccihuatl Trip Report (#3346)

A beutiful mountain! I don't know what it looks like from the summit though. Only three of our group of seven made it to the top.We tried the west face and I don't think we had enough time between the hike to the Otis Macallister hut and the summit attempt.(only 10 hours) If we had a day to rest and further acclimatize we could have done better I believe. Kudos to John Krotec,John Hornblower, and Paul Raymond for making it to the top. They were the first to do that route since October of last year as far as anyone we talked to knew. The Reyes people are AWSOME. They helped make the trip among the most enjoyable I have ever had. Give me a buzz if you have any questions.
