Our guides called to check in after summiting Ixta this morning. They have had some trouble with the cybercast transmissions from the satellite phone, and so called to let us know all is well and they are back down safely. The weather has been hit or miss the last few days, perhaps as the edges of Hurricane Patricia moved through Mexico over the weekend. They experienced whiteout conditions down low but were able to safely navigate to the summit and back down. Congratulations to the team!
They now head down off the mountain and will take a van to the historic city of Puebla where they will rest up tonight and tomorrow. The guides plan to send an update from Puebla this evening. Thanks for following along!
