Good morning from the top of Ixtaccihuatl!

We are standing on the summit with the RMI Mexico’s Volcanoes team.  We had a fantastic climb this morning, a huge moon and unbelievable cramponing conditions.  The climb was smooth and we are up in great time.  So we are just checking out the views of Puebla, Amecameca and Mexico City with the lights down below.  Everyone did great.

We want to wish Fernando a very Happy Birthday and thank him for spending his birthday with us on the summit. 

We’ll be checking in when we get down low.
