Olga Rumyantseva, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Mexico:

Today, our group climbed on Orizaba. Everyone who wanted to and went on the ascent, stood on top of the highest volcano in North America. Before that there were days of acclimatization. On the eve of the ascent it was raining. It lasted till ten o'clock. But by twelve, when we were about to go out, we were finally shown the stars. Having overcome the stone obstacles and endless steep snow climb, our group reached the top!

Sergey Larin, a guide of  the 7 Summits Club from Mexico, the third Day. 23.02. Acclimatization ascent to the top of  La Malinche, 4450 m. We left the shelter at 3000 m in 7 a.m., after 6 hours we were at the top. Local guide Julio accompanied us. And also a dog who earned a sandwich for climbing to the top.  After the descent we moved to a hotel in Tapana, closer to Orizaba.  Everyone is tired, yet it was a climb up  to 1400m in height, and only on the third day. Tomorrow it will show, I hope, that we will recover completely.

Yesterday, 10th of January, a group of 7 Summits Club (Pasha and Victor) stood on the summit of the highest volcano in North America and part of the roof of Mexico, peak of Orizaba (5700 m). All the participants are alive, healthy and happy. Orizaba is not the easiest peak, especially if you climb it from the South on the steep scree. Sometimes we had to move on all fours, and literally! But all's well that ends well. Now we are down in the valley. And not even went to Puebla, but returned to Mexico city. Here we are waiting for friends and free entertainment.

Nastya Kuznetsova, guide of the 7 Summits Club: It was a beautiful day with great weather. We made an acclimatization ascent to the top of La Malinche from the height of 3100 m to 4450 m. Today, it has opened to us the three of fives (three volcanoes of Mexico with a height of over 5000 m) Orizaba with his companion (or companion) Sierra Negro, the top in the form of the female silhouette of the volcano Iztaccihuatl and the male cone of the volcano Popocatepetl. The latter, once again, clearly shows signs of life. Now we are resting before the storm Orizaba.

Nastya Kuznetsova, guide of the 7 Summits Club: news from Mexico. Today was the key day of our entire program - day assault on the highest volcano of North America, the peak of Orizaba. Today, January 3, our heroes are Vlad Moroz and Georgi Kuzmin who stood on the top. The support group has reached the height of 5200 m. Everyone is happy. Everyone got what they wanted. Although it was not easy. Initially the ascent was planned on the Northern slope of Orizaba. But, from the unfavourable state of the snow-ice slopes of the North, it was decided to make the ascent from the South. And there are nuances. There is almost no snow, but there are many talus slopes mixed with stone collapse and a protracted steep scree, with hidden ice. But, our male part of the team was able to overcome all obstacles and come out on top.

 Now the whole group is resting after the storm in the shelter Tapan and is preparing to return to Mexico.
