  4. What will you give me for them. Both sets are in great condition these are my other tools just don't need them.
  5. beta on Izaccihuatl and El Pico De Orizaba?

    Yep the hut sucks, bring a tent. A cheaper option you can get a taxi from town to Hidago for I think, I payed 90 pesos. From there it is a 4 or so mile walk on a road. I also stayed at a small hotel in town that was basic but nice. I think it is one block down the main road from the Pemex station on the left (130 pesos. The normal route was in great shape as of the 15th. There was no crevasse danger to speak of. Oh also no ATM in town. Also the food was horrible at the white house where all the gringos are known to eat. Have fun!
  6. did you pass a huge, thin flake at some point, jutting upwards? Don't think so. As Moira said are intentions were to climb a route Briody and I did awhile back and well this one ended up being right of it. We were pretty much right on the edge of the transion between the granite and shale or whatever that stone is. Who knows? FA or not as said above many people have done routes up there. Good times!
  7. Well sure Moira, someone else could have had the FA. But as I told you after talking with some local well shall we say "Sources" the FA is most likely. What the hell though, FA or not it was fun!

I will be home in about a week so can send you some beta. The guide book you buy in the US is crap (jeff jackson one). Ben
