The Club de Exploraciones de Mexico

The Club de Exploraciones de Mexico reports that the unfortunate number of accidents on the Mexican volcanoes and mountain crags is not diminishing, but that efforts are being made to indoctrinate Mexican climbers through the many existing clublets. But it seems that an effective safety program is difficult to achieve because of the individualistic nature of both the climbers and the clubs to which they belong. This problem is aggravated by the very large number of inexperienced mountain enthusiasts at the present time. Another complicating factor is that accidents which occur to persons not associated with clubs are often the result of motives which are very difficult to control.
