Ascent Trip Report

Made it to this point on an acclimatization hike in preparation for Pico de Orizaba. It was pretty straightforward, save for the first 600' after the refugio at 15,500'. Made it from La Joya trailhead to the refugio in 2:20, then another 1:15 to get to the start of the belly glacier. From there, it took 2 hours to get back down. This is the highest peak I have ever hiked to so far!
