Pico de Orizaba

Pico de Orizaba Trip Report (#1137)

The only thing I have to add to Carl Corneliuson's summit day report - 08 December 2000

Come on people pack out your trash. We cleaned up the Piedra Grande hut and carted down 3 Large bags of trash.

Also if the lovely outdoor toilet is too gross to use and you are forced to shit outside. Please, please use your ice-axe to dig a hole to shit in, and pack your used toilet paper into a ziplock baggie and take it out with the rest of your trash.

I am embarrassed for the climbing community for trashing this sacred mountain and it's 'emergency huts'.
