Ascent Trip Report

The summit is on private property (the Large Millimeter Telescope) but I was hopeful that we'd be able to convince someone to let us in. When we arrived at the summit area, the gate was open, so we wandered in and found someone working on the construction of the new telescopes. Unfortunately he said that the boss was around so we would need to leave. It was a bit of a bummer, but no matter -- the goal of the trip was Pico de Orizaba the next day.
