Mexico Volcanoes: Waterfall and Team Prepare for Summit Bid

Well, we’re at the hut on Orizaba getting ready to climb tonight.  It was an interesting drive up here, for sure.  It’s been very dry here recently and some forest fires have sprung up down low on the mountain.  Normally this wouldn’t worry me too much but one of the fires is within a mile of our access road.  There are firefighters working in the area and our local logistics company is on top of the situation so at this point it’s just a minor concern.  One thing that’s looking good is that there seems to be a weather system building which would help the fire situation out a ton.  The downside of that is it will make climbing more difficult if we are faced with a storm.

So that’s basically our situation… there’s a few things that are out of our control, so we’re just doing what we can to give ourselves the best shot at the summit.  We’re prepping to go up but not at the risk of climbing in a dangerous storm or getting stranded at the hut.  We’ll be making the safest call, of course.  I’ll call back early tomorrow and update everyone on our status. 

Wish us luck, we could use it!
