leftyAyoloco Loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 29, 2008

lefty

We did a loop going up the Ayoloco glacier and coming down the Arista del Sol to our camp way below the De Los Cien hut. The lack of water on the mountain dictated our camping spot but gave us a chance to see more of the mountain this way.

REALLY long day, about 17 hours. Mostly because of socializing, and some inexperience people at the top who didn't bring any crampons. We ended up helping them get back on the trail. The weather was warm and sunny with very little wind.

My daughter and I were hoping to make Las Rodillas, but instead went to the traditional summit.

A great prep climb for Orizaba. I climbed them both with Mexican guide Cristobol Corona. We spent the night at the high hut and then hit up the summit the next morning. Beautiful climb and a fun, easy glacier.

Me and 12 climbers from Guatemala did it without local guides, for mostly of us this volcano was the first 5000 climbed succesfully. We finish 5 volcanoes in 15 days.

After climbing Popo the day before and since we felt great we decided to go up Ixta. I thought it was much more varied and the huts were, shall we say, "interesting" to have a look in but we were glad we didn't have to stay in them. After a couple of days rest we would then do Orizaba. Beautiful country.

Date Climbed: Feb 17, 2008

I climbed Ixta with SP member Deungsan. I put the info in the Plans and Parter section and he responded. We climbed pretty well together considering we had never seen or spoke to each other, the only communication we had was through the internet. Very long day with alot of ups and downs on some very loose scree. Started at Alzomoni Lodge and returned to our ride at La Joya. Round trip was 15 very long hours.

This was a long day. We started from the Altzomoni hut near La Joya at just after midnight. We got back to La Joya at 4:00 in the afternoon. There's a lot of up & down and loose nasty stuff along the way. This was my second climb of Izta. I felt great but it didn't get any easier!

To bad my partner was sooooo sick... not enough chile sauce to kill those nasty bacteria I assume !
Great sunset over the valley and terrific views of Popocatepetl

Great climb but be prepared for two down sections before the final summit. Only needed crampons. Didn't need axe or rope.

I climbed Ixta via the Ayoloco Glacier in 2004. We carried our bivy gear up and descended the standard route. There was a fantastic taco stand at the base too.

Amazing climb - and long. And which was the summit point? We went to three different points that were all the same elevation!

I had beautiful day on the mountain after four awful days of wind and snow. The wind shifted and i got hit with Popo's smoke and sulfer, almost puked for an hour straight.
Walked to all "three" summits just to be sure!

My reasoning on doing Izta instead of Popo was: it would be easier to find someone to go to Mexico again to climb Popo! Of course I didn't know Popo was going to become active again later that year. Hopefully Popo will settle down while I'm still young enough to climb it. In the meantime I will do Izta again!

Good conditions. Could have gotten by without crampons (with careful footwork).

With ten others members of the Orem, UT, Serac Mountaineering Club, reached the wind-swept summit on a day of hard-core winds, unrelenting and sometimes vicious. Still, the experience was enjoyable in spite of a fall on the trail by one member during the ascent and one individual getting lost on the descent. By eleven p.m. all were back, safe and sound. We had camped at the "hut" and everyone was at the summit in less than 4 hours. This was our acclimatization hike for the attempt later in the week on Orizaba. We all reached the summit of Orizaba two days later.
