Mexico’s Volcanoes: Team Returns to Tlachichuca After Orizaba Climb

Hello from Tlachichuca,

Upon our arrival to the Piedra Grande Hut, we heard from fellow guides that they had been turned due to bad weather the night before on Orizaba. It appears as though Central Mexico has been getting hit hard these days by the weather demons, and not just on Ixta. When we woke last night a different story was being written. It was downright balmy!  It did cool off as we climbed, but we enjoyed near perfect weather as we climbed through a little bit of new snow to the glacier where most fresh precipitation had been blown far away.

The team did a great job on a huge day and we all stood on top together, with great views of Mexico’s volcanoes even Ixta came out for the first time all week.

Thanks to a great team, Mexico crew and fellow guides JJ and Fernando for an awesome trip!
