King Of The Castle

And you are the dirty rascal. Or not. But anyway, last year I climbed up Iztaccihuatl, Mexico’s third highest mountain. Almost all the way to the top! But not quite. So we are giving it another go this weekend. We leave early tomorrow to climb roughly halfway up the mountain to the 4,700 metre point on day one. After a night freezing our nads off in a tent, we’ll set off at 5am to go the rest of the way, up the La Mujer Dormida’s knees, across a glacier, and on to her breasts – the 5,200 metre summit.

I’ll take a few photos, particularly of the climb beyond the point we got to last year. But I’m mostly going to try and take some video. I took a few seconds of footage last year, but it wasn’t really much good. The best effort is below. If you want to see the photos of last years effort then just click here. Otherwise, wish me luck…!
