Josh let us know that Ixta was a ‘no go’ this morning. They started up from high camp in spite of the winds, hoping they’d die down as the team approached sunrise. No such luck. Winds simply stayed too high to be within the team’s comfort zone and margin of safety. ‘Stuff’ happens but everyone’s down, fine and heading for the showers in the city of Puebla. Off to Tlachichuca in the morning, lunch with the Reyes family and then the 4-wheel drive up to the hut. Orizaba awaits.
