Voted 10/10

I suggest to attach it to the Pico de Orizaba main page (http://www.summitpost.org/mountain/rock/150192/pico-de-orizaba.html) as a children page. The pictures are great, congratulations on your summit success

Terrific shots.
I'm considering doing this next January, how technical is it?

It's not really technical. I went up alone. Once you get beyond the labyrinth it a straight walk up the glacier. At least when I climbed it in November. There was big snowfall later on in the winter.
