Mexico Volcanoes: Waterfall & Team In Puebla after Successful Ixta Summit

Hi from Puebla!  It’s just after 11 p.m. and we just got back from dinner.  It was a long and great day.  We woke up this morning before 2 a.m. and started climbing just after 3.  The night was cool and crisp but windless which was really great for us.  Everyone on the team was very motivated to climb and we made good progress up to the top of the Ayoloco Glacier.  From there the good weather continued and just over 4 hours after starting we were standing on top of Ixta.  It was a beautiful day for climbing.  The walk down went very smooth.  We had a light breeze on the lower mountain (that’s the big weather story for us so far!) and when we got to the trail head we were greeted with tortas, cervesas and refrescos.  Now we’re all set up for a rest day in Puebla tomorrow.
