Crampons, Ice Axe & Helmet needed


We just climbed Malinche today and snow/ice conditions requiere the use of Crampons, Ice Axe, Helmet and a rope if you are seriuos about reaching the summit.

The slope ranges from 35 fo 45 degrees with hard snow and ice.
In some parts the crampons just bite the snow a making it hard for a self arrest.

I live at the base of Malinche and I will try to post when conditions return to normal.

Have a great climb.

Ice conditions

Hi, thank you for emphasizing this. The main page makes it sound as if the Malinche were always just a nice picnic stroll. I have been on the mountain with extreme conditions, too, and can confirm that it can be pretty dangerous.

Parents refers to a larger category under which an object falls. For example, theAconcagua mountain page has the 'Aconcagua Group' and the 'Seven Summits' asparents and is a parent itself to many routes, photos, and Trip Reports.
