asmrzRoute Climbed: Via Ventorillo(Sp?) Route Date Climbed: March 11-21, 1981  Sucess!


George Ivy and I climbed Popo on our second day after arriving in Mexico in 1981. We both felt really sick and had headache when we got back to the hut/hotel. I still rememebr the horrible scree slope to get to the crater and the egg smell when we got there.

Accident involving some Germans prevented us from the climb, no one was killed, but one did slip into a crevasse and break his pelvis. The other caught himself with his hands. We came on him running down the trail to meet us with his hands all bloodied. We had to get the Cruz roja involved to effect the rescue...

Hope to come back and finish this one some day. There's still time!...

Slummit ClimberRoute Climbed: Standard route from the Popo/Izta Saddle Date Climbed: Jan 25, 1983  Sucess!
Climbed with a group from the Iowa Mountaineers as a survey for their future schedules. Nice day, good solid ice for crampons to bite into and instructive view down into the crater- which now, in 2001/2 is spewing out hot lave, gas and ash. We were fortunate to have visited when we did.
