Mexico Volcanoes: Our Team Checks in from Ixta’s High Camp

Hello everyone, this is Team Mexico. JJ Justman and Adam Knoff as guides. We are at high camp on the mountain of Ixtaccihuatl. This is our first real mountaineering challenge of the trip and we are sitting comfortably at 14,500 feet.  We are taking a different route than the normal route that other teams generally take because the mountain this year is so dry.  We have a great view of the upper mountain from where we are sitting and have a new route picked out that keeps us on ridge lines to keep us safe from rockfalls. We’re very excited for tomorrow’s summit bid and will keep you posted on how that all unfolds. Stay tuned for more action tomorrow. Hasta manana.

I appreciate the updates and photos. Speaking of photos, what is the shack? Sleeping quarters or a really large outhouse?
