Pico de Orizaba Comments
[ Post a Comment ]
Geoff, nice page, which I would give 3.5 stars if I could. The information is quite thorough. One distraction: you have a lot of page breaks in the text, which prevent the text from appearing as a continuous paragraph. You can fix that by "edit"ing the page and then removing the line breaks with the delete key. They can be kinda hard to find, but if you open a separate window with the existing mountain page, you can usually find them.
For a popular, high mountain like this, I think it's crucial to find some more resources on the web (trip reports, accomodations, etc.). Once you find a link, you can make a direct link by doing this:

|I have adopted the page and cleaned up the page breaks, syntax, spelling and organization of the page. I will start to add detailed route information over the next week. Please take a look.|

|I know the mountain and it is very beautiful. |
The page gives the scent of the enchanted populations of Mexico.
Very good page!
Anyway, could I suggest a thing? You might to rename the title of the page and, next to the name of Pico de Orizaba, post also the former name "Citlateptl": this volcano is famous with this name as same as with the name you titled the page with!

|Would like to give this page 3.5 stars but it's not an option. I think the overview section could use some beefing up. This is a mountain known worldwide and just think you can find more info about it to tell. What you have is good, just not enough in my mind.|
Additionally, there are a lot of spelling errors on your page. I also think you should incorporate some of the additions that have been submitted by other climbers into your page, specifically, the links provided by John.
Let me know if you get around to updating your page and I will be happy to update my vote as well. Thanks.
Updated to 4 stars -- 3/21/05 Nice job!

|No rating of the common route. Distance and elevation gain for the trip would be great. Get rid of the spelling errors.|

|Hi. I now maintain this mountain. If you'd like to revisit and review I'd appreciate it. Cheers!|

|I climbed Citlaltepetl on February 2005, I had with me a friend who is a mountain guide and who has summited Orizaba's 70+times. The information I got from your page was very useful, is nice to be able to recognize land features on your own when you are going with a pro!|
Thanks for a good page.......Jose.

|This Is a Great Page! I sur hope i can climb this one some day|

|Thanks for the vote. You'll be able to climb it with the experience you are getting in Colorado. Take a glacier travel class or be taught and you'll be set. It'd be a great trip to do over Christmas break from college. Cheers!|

|Awesome looking page. I really hope to climb this one in the future (if my wife will let me).|

|Curtissimo||name of the peak|
|I think you should really title this by the peak's correct name, Citlaltepetl. You could put Pico de Orizaba in parenthsis if you must. It's not that hard to say, especially if you know the etymology: citlalli (seet-lally) means star, and tepetl (tay- pet) means mountain (tepec (tay-pec) is hill). Putting them together is Citlal-tepetl (seet-lal-tay-pet). It's really easy onece you say it a couple of times!|
