Peak Expeditions’ Leader, Alex Barber heads to Mexico to attempt Pico De Orizaba 18,700′ (third highest peak in North America) and Iztaccihuatl 17,159′ (seventh highest peak in North America). Alex Barber will be joined by Whittaker Mountaineering and First Ascent photographer Jon Mancuso, they depart 8th and return the 18th of November. They’ll climb Pico De Orizaba via the Jamapa Glacier and Iztaccihuatl via La Arista del Sol, the duo will face dangerously icy conditions, the cause of a string of accidents so far this season from an especially arid autumn. We'd like to thank our sponsor: Zeal, Smart Wool, First Ascent, Cadence9, Adventure Medical Kits, and Nuun.
