Recent climb on Pico de Orizaba

21. January 2018

After la Malinche and another acclimatization Tour start the high light of the top of Mexico. After a short and troubled night at the Piedra Grande hut, started at 2am. The ascent to the crampon zone was already long and debilitating. On the glacier were just ICE, very difficult ramming the crampons safely in the steepness of the final ascent was crazy and brutal. After a short brake on the summit, start the descent at the same way. Ascent 7.5 h, complete tour 12h. Now let’s go to Izta, then Yucatan…

Thanks to all Guides, thanks to Servimont for support in making my solo Tour Possible!
