Mexico Volcanoes: Waterfall & Team at Orizaba High Camp

Elevation: 14,000'

Just a quick check in from Piedra Grande.  Today was smooth as silk for our move to the hut on Orizaba.  We left Puebla just after 8am and arrived at the Servimont compound at 10:15.  That gave us plenty of time to pack and have a nice lunch.  After that we loaded in the big 4x4 for the steep drive to the hut.  We had great views of the mountain all day and everything seems to be coming together for a good climb tonight.  We’ll check in tomorrow morning, hopefully from the summit!
