The guide of the group, the President of the 7 Summits Club, Alexander Abramov reports from Mexico: 

The group of the 7 Summits Club moved to the base camp Orizaba.  Before leaving, we took a photo with our guides Julio and Katrina. On the way, we waited for our mountain to open. At first it was in the cloud. But then, we were lucky and Orizaba opened.  People often die on this mountain.  Steep ice slopes without gentle slopes. And at the bottom there is a stone scree.  There are years when there is clear ice on the route. But we are lucky. There is little ice on the mountain now. Mostly snow and firn.
