Mexico Volcanoes Expedition
Departed 22nd December 2017
This expedition involves climbing the highest volcano in North America, along with two other volcanoes, in just 11 days! We began our acclimatisation by first visiting the Teotihuacan Pyramids, before moving over to our base for the ascent of La Malinche (4460m), followed by Iztaccihuatl (5260m) and finally heading out to our main objective, Pico de Orizaba (5636m), the continent’s third highest mountain after Denali and Mt Logan. The route to the crater rim follows a rocky ravine and then the Glacier de Jamapa before the views across the Gulf of Mexico start to emerge to give a breath-taking summit panorama from this perfectly formed conical shaped peak.
We successfully climbed all three summits and are now back in Mexico City.
