Pico de Orizaba

Pico de Orizaba Trip Report (#996)

Nothing higher from Alaska to Ecuador!!!! I liked a lot this peak, the view from the summit and the beatiful glaciar. This time in november 2001, I wolked from San Miguel Hidalgo to the hut Piedra Grande. The summit day was clear but a little windy. The moon rise was incredible, and the climb in the early morning was amazing. I've made the summit at 8:15 on november 2. Next day I walked back from the hut Piedra Grande to Tlachichuca (like 30 kms).
