Mexico: Ixta High Camp
Greetings from our high camp on Ixta at 14,700 feet above sea level. Today we hiked from our hut to this high camp below the Ayoloco Glacier, known here as the Stomach of Ixta, the ‘White Woman.’ Everyone did very well today and seems to be handling our new high point very well.
This afternoon we are reviewing crampons, ice axes and rope travel around camp before an early dinner. For dinner’s entertainment we will go over the plan for tomorrow’s attempt on Ixta, looking at our route and discussing our strategies for the day. Then it’s off to bed for an early start for summit day. Wish us luck!
