This is Alexander Abramov from Mexico. The team of friends of Fyodor Konyukhov continues the program of climbing Mount Orizaba. Today we climbed the first peak of our program - Sierra Negra (4600m). We got up at 5 am, in a hotel in the city of Puebla. And by 8 am we arrived in the town of Zopan, which is located at the foot of Orizaba. Here we had breakfast and went on an acclimatization ascent. The ascent and descent on Sierra Negra took 7 hours along with the road. At the top, we installed an icon of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker. The climb wasn't easy for everyone. In the evening, part of the team has a headache.
Tomorrow we will move to the Base Camp near Orizaba at an altitude of 4200 meters. There Sasha Dorojunov and Luba Pershina already set for us tents.
