I wish I could find a more up-to-date book about these beatiful mountains
Added several weeks after the above post: Just returned from climbing Izta and Orizaba. The guidebook was helpful in a general way, but we got better information on conditions from mountaineering staff at Ruben's sporting goods in Mexico City, and ended up hiring guides, which proved to be a good move for us. One beef with this book - it portrays Mexico City as being somewhat inhospitable to visitors. I traveled the metro many times and never encountered the pick pockets noted in the book. Yes, the metro was sometimes crowded, but no worse than the NYC subway during rush hour. He also warns about the taxi ripoff, but we found the "on the street" metered taxis to be fair and safe, and often a less expensive choice than the unmetered taxi arranged by the hostel. I would add that a working knowledge of Spanish is essential to facilitate the climbing - there are few English speakers around!
