Mexico: Preparing for Orizaba Summit

After a great rest day in scenic Puebla, our team traveled to Tlachichuca to get ready for our attempt of Pico de Orizaba.  We exploded our gear in the 200-year old courtyard of our host and outfitter, Dr. Reyes.  Once a soap factory, now climber’s hostel, his lovely compound is now the launching pad for most climbers trying Orizaba. 

After repacking our climbing gear, we sat down to a great lunch, then boarded our truck with full bellies and drove to Piedra Grande.  At Piedra Grande, we set up camp and had another big meal before turning in to catch a few zzz’s.  We’ll wake up in a few hours and give this “mountain of stars” a shot under a full moon.  If all goes well, we’ll send a shout from the top.  Buenas noches and cross your fingers for us!
