Elevation: 18,701'

Hello everybody, this is Jake standing on top of El Pico de Orizaba, in Mexico, third highest point on the North American continent.

We did a great job today.  Everybody climbed super well.  It’s breezy, a little cold, but we’ve got stellar views in every direction had an amazing moon lit climb, barely needed a headlamp.  It was completely ideal. 

So, everybody did great and we’ll be checking in, probably late this evening with an update after we head down safely.  Thanks for all the support back home and we’ll be talking to you guys soon. 

Alright, take care.
