IMG Senior Guide, Dallas Glass and team are off to a good start down in sunny Mexico. Had a brief ‘scare’ with one of our members missing both duffels but a little patience and persistence and all was resolved, albeit at 3:00 in the morning. Resolved is in the key word.
Team met in Mexico City on Saturday evening and headed out for their first dinner together. The evening started at the Maria Cristina Hotel with a little meet and greet, followed by a review of the week’s itinerary, dinner and then to bed. They got out on schedule Sunday morning and headed to Amecameca and onward to Cortez Pass for their first acclimatization hike. Did the same the next day but continued up towards high camp with a carry, mostly of water. Now the crew’s at high camp on Ixta, all doing well and feeling pretty strong. Tomorrow is their summit attempt. If the weather holds, they should do well.
