At 5636 meters (18,491 ft) in height, Pico de Orizaba is the tallest mountain in Mexico and the third highest in all of North America. The video below documents a climb up the massive volcano as part of the Challenge 21 expedition with filmmaker Josh Wolff joining climber Jake Norton on quite an adventure. Orizaba is a popular, yet challenging, climb that is not unlike a trek to the top of Kilimanjaro in Africa in that it is mostly a non-technical climb. But the views from the top are beautiful and rewarding after a tough hike. This video serves as a good introduction to the climb and the efforts that Challenge 21 are undertaking to raise awareness of the need for clean drinking water.
