George Dunn, leading the current IMG Mexico trip, just called in. 100% on top of Orizaba. He was super excited about how well everyone did. All stood on top. He was calling from below a spot called the Labyrinth. It’s a series of gullies which provide access to the upper mountain. Sometimes they’re easy snow, sometimes a bit icy. George said they were a bit on the ‘firm’ side this week but that the entire team is already through that area. Now, it’s pretty much a matter of a couple of hours of rocky trail and they’ll be back to the hut. The driver and 4-wheel vehicle will be waiting for them. Then, it’s another couple of hours down to the Reyes family compound in Tlachichuca. Beer, showers and dinner – and in that order. Great job and congratulations to all.
