SUMMIT !!! Group of Artem Rostovtsev successfully climbed highest volcano of North America!
Hi, Seven Summits! It is Artem Rostovtsev, Mexico, the State of Puebla. This morning, till noon, we were at the top of the peak of Orizaba. We started at 2a.m., planned for 8 hours to reach the summit. But we have prevented by sudden cracks. So I inform all that Orizaba became cracked. The glacier is in the cracks.

Future plans - cultural and historical leisure.
