Elevation: 10,000'

Hey this is Seth checking in from La Malinche over here in Mexico. We just had a great day climbing up the mountain actually of La Malinche. We made it to just about 13,500’ from our cabanas here at 10,000 feet. It was getting to be around 4:15 at that point so we turned around, descended back down here to 10,000’ and just finished with a nice dinner and we’re getting tucked in. There’s actually TVs in the room here so we were able to pipe in the Seahawks-49ers game. We started a fire in the fireplace and we’re gonna watch them. [Connection lost.]

Tomorrow the team will depart La Malinche and drive toward Ixtaccihuatl’s Altzomoni Hut.
