4 out of 5 stars Pico de orizaba - Jamapa Glacier

Great peak. We ran into some serious wind at the top and some bullet proof ice along the rim of the crater. We skipped the Labyrinth and went straight up to the base of the glacier - saved about 2 hours but the pitch was fairly steep. Took about 7 hours from the Piedra Grande hut to peak. Don't underestimate this mountain.
