Not a cloud in the way the entire 9 hours hut-to-hut! Quite cold, but that's what wool is for. Climbed with Oso from OMG; we took a very direct line straight up with perfect snow conditions. So jealous to watch 2 Colorado guys ski down! Had climbed Izta 2 days before; altitude was never an issue for me. Awesome trip!

I was lucky again, great weather, bluebird day, simply perfect, glacier was in great condition and it was easy, but still challenging in some ways.

Be sure and bring warm gear, it was near to Rainier conditions at points. Loved it. If you can scramble, don't get nerved about route finding at all. Glaciers might swallow your wallet. Be cool in Tchlachichuca, don't wear shorts in public...

June is not really season, which makes it great. Hut empty, nobody on the mountain. First day to teh hut and lght acclimatisation hike.
Second day hike up to the glacier in daylight to scout the route, which is confusing at times, but many possibilities, as long as you go up... 3rd day, leave at 2AM for summit, summit at about 7.30, enjoy the views for half an hour and back doan at 10am.

Very recommended mountain, easily accessible and no permit or hut fees. You do need some basic glacier experience, or bring/hire a local guide.

Drove all the way from SLC UT. Didnt allow enough time to acclimatize after playing at beach. Spent whole time in hut with AMS trying to sleep. Too bad; but neat experience!

Pretty easy route (altitude aside) if you have any crampon experience. The labrynth is over-hyped; there is no one correct route - just go up.

This was a great climb in terms of scenery, position, and brevity. We summited on the last day of '07 and returned to party in Tlachichuca with the locals celebrating New Years. Great climb.

Route was in great condition, one step cramponing and snow into the "fingers" of the labyrinth made for easier route finding through that section.

After summiting Ixta two days eariler I was anxious to attempt Orizaba. After reaching the glacier we turned to the right and ascended a very direct line to just below the summit. Mostly a 30 to 35 degree slope with the upper section getting fairly steep. Maybe a 50 to 55 degree climb. Set protection on the upper part. Descended the normal route.

Great climb with a beautiful sunny day. Very windy on top. Skipped the Labyrinth and went straight up.

Climbed Pico de Orizaba with Mountain Professionals LLC based out of Boulder, CO. El Quatro de Orizaba - Alan, Scott,Patrick and I spent one week in Mexico gradually acclimatizing from Tlachichuca to the Piedra Grande Hut to high camp. Almost perfect weather with a sunrise summit - 5 hours from high camp to summit! Great first mountain at significant altitude!!

the glacier starts at 16,700' as of late march 2007. the best route seems to be to ascend directly to the "flats". from there, hook a left and climb directly towards the summit.

WOW!

This was part of a grand adventure when my roommate(climbing partner), Dad, & cousin piled into a 4x4 Scout and drove there from AZ, all the way to Piedra Grande! My partner flaked so I soloed it on the day after Christmas. We continued on to further adventures in Mexico including an ascent of the Pena de Bernal.
