All Summit Orizaba!

After enduring extraordinarily high winds on Ixta, the team was given a break with mere 50 mph winds on Orizaba! Although the gusts remained high, the skies were clear, and the entire team was able to summit at around 8:30 am on Saturday after climbing 4200 vertical feet in about 7 hours. A tequila-fueled fiesta in Puebla hit the spot last night before traveling back to Mexico City today to catch flights home.
