Mexico: La Malinche Acclimatization Climb

Posted by: | March 07, 2011
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Mexico
Elevation: 10,000'

Fortunately for the team the cloud that built over La Malinche lost some intensity and broke long enough to allow us to all stand on the summit.  Congratulations on a great day!  Our climb to the top of this 14,500’ volcano is a major part of our acclimatization process.  To get to such a high elevation and be able to rest really helps get us ready for our next few days. 

Everyone climbed strong and after a big day is set for some hot showers and a good night’s sleep.  Well done!
