Me ontop. Don't know wtf is on my tooth there, chocolate? I was more than gone by that point.

Last weekend, I summited Mexico’s highest mountain. America’s 3rd highest mountain, el Pico de Orizaba. 5600 god-damn meters.

Everest is 8800 meters by comparison. It’s on my list in less than 5 years.

El Pico, which I affectively named “the never ending mountain”, was grueling, another true test to my being.
