Greg checked in this morning from Mexico. He’s with a small, private group looking to climb both Ixta and Orizaba before Christmas. Group arrived late Saturday but with all luggage in hand. Private transportation took them out towards Ixta and Cortez Pass for an acclimatization hike. Night was spent in the town of Amecameca.
A carry is planned for today up towards high camp on Ixta. They’ll carry some water, food and part of the group gear and drop it up higher. Night spent back at the Pass. Weather’s good as is common this time of year. They’re off to a good start.
