I have been planning on climbing Pico De Orizaba in Mexico for some time now (at least the last 2 years). I finally found the time, financial resources, and teammate (Ondrej) to go and just do it! If you did not know: Pico is the 3rd tallest mountain in North America standing tall at 5,636 metres (18,491 ft).
We wanted to share our experience and film everything for you! So we VlOGED the whole journey from Preparations to the actual summit day!
In this episode we drive from Puebla to Tlachichua and then to the base camp of Pico De Orizaba which is the Piedra Grande Hut. It takes us around 10 to 12 hours to get to the hut from Puebla and solid 7 hours from Tlachichuca instead of the 2 hours Google says it will take. We almost give up...
This is Episode 2 out of 3. Episode 1 is here: https://youtu.be/2RNuLAFc_po
