Summit of Pico de Orizaba

Dolph has just begun his climb of Orizaba with Gregg. The cabin in the background is for climbers to rest and sleep. Steve Ramsey and his friend, who became ill, remained at the cabin for one extra day before starting their climb. They are shown in this photo on the far right (barely visible).
