Pico de Orizaba Climbing Notes

Ivan Loredo Vidal from MEXICO writes:

Covid 2020 update (26 july 2020).

Though typically the climbing season runs from October to april, it can be climbed year round.

Summer time is the rainy season with some storms, rain & snow, making it less accessible.

Since 21 march 2020, it has been officially covid closed (particularly for the tour operators).

I will soon go with 2 clients to see if a) it can be accessed, and b) if the weather allows us to climb it.

Will report back asap.
