Elevation: 14,750'

Hello everyone,

This is RMI Guide JJ Justman checking in. We want to let everyone following our Mexico’s Volcanoes Expedition know that we are at high camp on Ixta (14,750ft).  The Team is doing fantastic. We are preparing for our summit bid tomorrow, so we are getting our water ready. We are planning on waking up around midnight and getting hot drinks going for our crew.
It is pretty unusual right now, there is a ton of snow that you don’t normally see here on Ixta, but it is actually making for some pretty nice climbing.  Weather is calm there is no wind, so we will keep our fingers crossed.  It’s looking like it is going to be a great day tomorrow, so stay tuned.  We will check in again tomorrow and will hopefully have some great news.  We are looking at a nice safe climb of Ixta.

Ciao from Mexico!
