Climbing Partner for Orizaba, Late March

Post by Fathalikhani1 »

Hi all!

Looking to see if anyone has interest in linking up to do a quick hit on Orizaba the last week of March. Originally planned to climb and ski but couldn't make it earlier in the season and looking for a tune up climb before heading to the Himalaya in April. Likely flying into Mexico City and out of Puebla or in and out of Puebla as an option. Have not booked anything yet so still semi flexible on dates!

Supposedly the north side is already out of condition and will only get worse. South side might be OK if you don't mind scree.
I'm old, slow and fat. Unfortunately, those are my good qualities.

Thanks for the header! I’ll have to get some beta on this. Really just want a quick tune up with the altitude and getting spikes on ice before heading out for the big mountains the following week!
