Any group going to Mexico in October??

Anyone know how safe it is climbing in Mexico these days? Violence in Mexico is only getting worse. Despite this, I'm planning a trip up Pico de Orizaba next month (October 2010) but want to take all precautions not get kidnapped or mugged while travelling to/from the mountain. Is there any group going in October? Thanks, Eric
