The Alpenglow team in Mexico began their trip by exploring Mexico City, followed by a day of travel to the mountains. They went for an acclimatization hike today up to 14,000′ and will sleep tonight in a hut at 12,500′. Everyone is healthy, happy, and strong with plans to get to High Camp (15,200′) tomorrow and the summit of Iztaccihuatl (aka Ixta, 17,154′) on Wednesday! We’ll let you know as soon as we get word on their summit bid.
