Pico de Orizaba

Pico de Orizaba Trip Report (#1038)

What a charge to think this is the third highest peak in North America, although admittedly it was relatively easy. The glacier was perfect for crampons, little wind and clear and 30 on top! Perfect conditions can change rapidly, though, and 18000 feet is never to be trifled with. Take gear for emergencies, and hydrate and fuel yourself continually all the way up. Don't forget to pressure breath and rest step
