Once you get to the base of the glacier, you can see almost the entire climb so a map might be of questionable value on the normal route.

The clouds frequently cover the upper summit before noon so actively marking waypoints on a GPS would be a good idea.

I have both the newer and the old paper 1:50,000 topos of Orizaba. I have been meaning to scan the corner with Orizaba for some time now. When I do I can post it.

If you do find a paper original for sale, grab it and hang on to it. When I was in Mexico in January I stopped at the government map store at the airport. They don't sell paper topos anymore, just digital.

In the past I have bought them from Omni. If you try them, could you please let us know if you were successful? The latest time I tried a few different sources for Mexico maps I wasn't successful. Some websites will show they have them, but then not have stock.
