We stuck with 2 Brits (Andy & Andrew) and their guide for awhile
A hideous crevasse. We had to take great care not to get a toe stuck in this, the most massive, crevasse we encountered.
I reach the crater rim just moments before the sun broke the horizon
The summit is just beyond the point at the top of the photo
Once you hit the rim you just traverse around and up to the top
Two Brits (Andy and Andrew) are ascending roped up with their local guide.
Here's a shot of the crater. It's a rather impressive crater with steep walls. It's also pretty deep.
While I took photos Courtney tagged the summit and heading back down
The smog/haze makes for a very interesting shadow.
The summit contains an odd collection of crosses and other items
Another nice shot of Orizaba's shadow being cast out into the distance
