Our expedition to Mexico is an exciting mix of sightseeing, climbing, traveling and enjoying the Mexican culture. Pico de Orizaba (18,851 ft.) and Iztaccihauatl (17,342 ft.) are both excellent introductions to high altitude climbing and a good step toward advancing your climbing skills and high altitude experience. From Mexico City, we first climb Iztaccihuatl which lies directly across the valley from the very active Volcano Popocateptl. Our program includes several days of acclimatization, along with climbing instruction, and explorations of various markets during our travels. We then travel farther east to Mexico's highest summit, Pico de Orizaba, the main objective of our expedition south of the border. Orizaba is a moderate snow and ice climb with a high camp at 16,000 ft. Come join us for a short, fun expedition exploring the high peaks of Mexico!
