Madness Team Summits Orizaba!

Congratulations to Gavin, Robert, and Sabina, who all summitted the Mexican Volcano Orizaba, despite challenging weather conditions, including more snow than the locals have seen since the 1990s. Richard, Tony, and Lauren all set personal high altitude records, too!

According to Madness guide Jason Broman, Sabina and Lauren’s favorite part of the trip was watching the playfulness of the locals with the fresh snow. “El Paso de Cortez was a huge party during the time we were there!” Jason said. “As you can imagine, Mexico doesn’t get much snow, so this was a big opportunity for celebration.”
