Team Moves Towards Orizaba Summit

We made it to Piedra Grande!

After getting blasted by snow on Ixta and hearing grim reports of bad roads, we’re pleasantly supprised to have a bit of good luck today. The sun came out this morning as we left Puebla and we were treated to an excellent view of El Pico de Orizaba as we aproached the village of Tlachichuca. After packing and a late breakfast we headed out in four wheel drive trucks, hoping to get at least half way to the hut at Piedra Grande. Fortunately we were able to get within a few miles and a truck with our gear made it to within 1.5 miles of the hut. We had sunny but cool weather as we hiked the road, which made for pleasant walking conditions. We have just finished dinner and we’re all looking forward to roping up and trying for the summit tonight. I’ll check in tomorrow. If all goes well, we’ll be on the summit.
