      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

beta on Izaccihuatl and El Pico De Orizaba?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for beta on route conditions on Izaccihuatl and El Pico De Orizaba. We are planning on the La Arista Del Sol route on Izaccihuatl and the Jamapa Glacier route on Orizaba. plan on summiting between February 7th to the 12th. I'd appreciate any current feedback on the routes.

thanks

Dude, Contact Sr. Limon. I will see if I still have his card at home. He is a lot more personal than Sr. Reyes, but that's just my opinion. Sr. Limon has private rooms to stay in instead of a dorm. And he f*cking rocks.

We liked The Reyes deal. And we also took a tent rather than staying in the hut with all the people acclimatizing (i.e. barfing, nursing headaches, suffering).

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!
