Climbing Pico de Orizaba

 Higher Than All in Mexico

 

 

Pico de orizaba, Orizaba

Located south of Puebla, with a height of more than 5620 Mt. (18,500 Ft.), this colossus is the third higher mountain in North America even known as Citlaltépetl, his prehispanic name that means "Mountain of the stars".
Trough an inclined sandy way that not Pico de orizaba, Orizabaonly constitutes a test of good training but an example of the importance of the “march style” of a mountain climber, we will apply the old “alpine step” and will reach the white superior border of the impressive crater that will give the widest whew of the pending Mexican plateau towards the forest of Veracruz and de Mexican Golf.
The long-haul by the extended glacier of Jamapa will take care for the glacier passage class.
