Nice trip report. Being there myself in 2003 helps see the trip though your writing. I am about 90 miles south west of Minneapolis. Have a good one, Joel
thank you, did you like the mountain there in Mexico ?
I replied to your quesitons on ice climbing, let me know if you are coming this way and we can meet and climb.
Good work, and trip report! I'm flying down to climb Orizaba with Bill562 in a few weeks... great to have some recent pix to get a sense of the mountain... Feel free to let me know if you ever want to come climbing here in Colorado!
I will definitely take you up onthat and we can climb something there.
Have fun in Mexico!!
Good thorough report. We may have seen you on the mountain - we arrived at the hut about mid day on 11th, and summitted the day after. Then went on to La Malinche...almost an exact copy of your trip, just one day later
Good trip Report. - have a good time!
Great report, Rubens! I'll have mine up sometime soon for a different perspective of the same trip. Getting AMS really sucked, but the trip overall was a fantastic experience! And I just gotta say, for the record... you are an animal!
He is more like a mutant with his ability to NOT get AMS. My nickname for him has been the Ruben'ator. Guess it fits huh?
Nice report! I think we met at Piedra Grande on the 11th - I'm the ominous french or austrian guy who was at the hut with Dan Bailey ;)
Anybody ski this thing? How is it? Vertical? Pitch? Dangers?
Thanks for shering.Good info, nice report.
