rmick25Re: Ixta


The most interesting volcano I've ever climbed and I'm from the Pacific NW. Highest i had been till the next week on Pico. Not very technically challenging but great first high altitude climb. Found a roach in the hut and treated myself to quite the "high" experience

ncstGreat climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2009


I went from Puebla to the Grupo de los Cien hut on the first day, got there at 3pm and went up another hour to acclimatize and see the route. Left the next day at 7am to reach the summit at 10.30am. No clouds and great views untill 10.15. Saw nobody during those two days. Had to walk
back to Paso de Cortez! Had them with me but didn't use crampons nor ice-axe.

Started 8a.m. with 2 sons and 2nephews. Neat route up. However, I was the only one that summited,3pm. Good reason to go again. down at 6pm. I had been dreaming of this climb for 4 years and was delighted.

SawtoothSeanFun Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 5, 2009


We started at 11am and finished up at 9pm. This was a fun traverse up and over, and around many rocky outcroppings. Two small glaciers crossings at the end mixed things up and also provided much needed water on a hot day. The views of Popo are impressive from the beginning of this route.

My wife Hilde and me climbed the volcanoe as an acclimatisation trip for Orizaba. The Ayoloco hut is a really filthy place. We did three hours to the summit and enjoyed especially the icy belly in the first sunrays. Awesome views on Popcatepetl.

leftyAyoloco Loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 29, 2008


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.

LCLong day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 23, 2008


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.

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.

Date Climbed: Jan 24, 2008


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!

Great sunset over the valley and terrific views of Popocatepetl
