Hello points North, this is Jake on the summit of Pico de Orizaba with our team who did a great job today getting up in good style.  We had awesome weather, light winds, warm, we are on the top looking into the crater right now. Enjoying some great views and really unbelievable day.

So thanks to everybody back home for all of the support and we will be calling you when we get down. Well, all right, that’s it from the third highest point in North America.

Take care up there and we’ll be seeing you soon.
