No summit yesterday on Ixta for the Mexico team. One of our members wasn’t feeling well on the climb and the team decided not to take any chances and they all escorted him down. He bounced back just fine but better safe than sorry.
After a nice ‘hotel night’ in Puebla last night, the team arrived in Tlachichuca today, had lunch with longtime friends, the Reyes family, and then headed up to Piedra Grande, the hut on Orizaba. Snow conditions sound good and they’ll be taking a shot at the summit early tomorrow. We’re wishing them luck.
