March 2010 Pico De Orizaba Mexico 18,500'
Chris Tomer asked me if I would be willing to take him up the 3rd highest peak in North America, Pico de Orizaba at 18,500'. It was to be my second summit of the giant stratavolcano in the State of Veracruz, a few hundred miles east of Mexico City, which I first climbed in 2009 when I went to Mexico and climbed the three highest volcanoes in 6 days, dubbed the "Mexican Trilogy"! My good friend Mike Robles, who lives in Mexico City and in Texas accompanied us as well. The video is below!
