Great beta, as mentioned. Will plan to hopefully use your travel from Mexico City to La Malinche route and other info.

Re: Thanks

Your welcome. My intent with this report was to fill in some details I found hard to discover in advance.

Very helpful

We're doing this in preparation for Pico De Orizaba. I had been thinking of maybe staying in Apizaco, but now we may be better at the cabins. So it was very helpful.

Re: Very helpful

By staying in the cabins you have an acclimation night by sleeping at 10,000’. Also your gear is more secure than if you were to camp at the trailhead.

I have done Orizaba & Izta both by themselves and also with doing Toluca or La Malinche first. In each case doing one of these acclimation climbs helped.
